My memoir book is about my recovery from a brain hemorrhage bleed during brain surgery. It caused the equivalent of a major stroke, leaving me with right-sided paralysis, unable to speak or comprehend what people said. It caused severe damage to my short-term memory and made me dependent on anti-seizure medicine for my new life. My recovery shows how some survivors of severe brain injuries can recover from having a productive life if they work hard at their physical, speech, cognitive, and emotional therapies.
