Sorry too hear about the medical problems but glad that all is getting under control. I always enjoy your post and have learned a lot from them, so please when you can, continue to post here. And do not worry about spelling errors, it is the content, not the spelling that we like. Take care and continue to get better.

Thanks for posting Brian. Been wondering about you. My wife had a TIA, and had amnesia for about 72 hours with it - 4 years ago and she used to be able to remember names from her first grade class. Names were always easy for her, even from the first time meeting people and even in Japanese. Then the TIA, bout with amnesia, and now she is about on my level of name remembrance, which is not good for someone that deals with the public as often as I do.

I do understand about "can't remember" basic words and names. I tell people that learning a new language (especially Japanese) past 35 years old and being immersed in it for a living is like being on drugs or having a TIA. Common original language words have to be "thought over and thought up". I use the thesaurus regularly. I remember the meaning that I want to convey but can't remember the common word. Very frustrating. People look at me like I'm an idiot for choosing a similar word but wrong word. Sometimes the Japanese word will come up but not the English.

I have not had a TIA, but my wife has. I watched the changes in her and know that it is a struggle. I will be praying for you and, AND Don't let that "can't remember the right word" stop you. We know your heart and encourage you to join in when ever you can.
