G'day, Brian. Trusting that everything will continue to improve. Prayers for you.
However, use caution with the pacemaker. A fellow had one and every time he saw a pretty girl, a garage door would go up!

When I saw TIA, my first thought was, I have that. And then I read the rest of the post. My TIA is Technical Issues Anger :)

I'd rather read your postings with some spelling errors than not read them at all, so i'm hoping you are back with us on a more regular basis.

Best wishes,
earl
Thank you Earl, I will take it with one small session at a time,
Kindest regards
Brian.

She's also had Atril Fib since she was 26 years old - she's 75 now - and just recently had a pacemaker installed to regulate that... she has a monitor that records information off the pacemaker and transmits it to her doctor every 30 days - when we can get a signal out here in the mountains.... cell phones do get a little iffy sometimes. She does have other problems, but is recovering nicely from the stroke and had no after effects from the TIA's.... hang in there and life will get better..
Wishing you good luck and good health for the future.

Thank you Chuck for your words of encouragement, and the insight into problems that your wife has experienced with AF and TIA's, sounds like she has had quite a lot of episodes with them over quite a long period. It is very pleasing to hear that she is recovering from her Stroke, my Thoughts and Prayers are with her.
Kindest regards,
Brian.

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.
Thank you Lee, for your insightful comments on the "I can't remember" episodes that one experiences. The Neurologist told me that difficulty with words and names is a very common episode with TIA. I thought that my becoming an Octogenarian, last December may have had something to do with the difficulty I was experiencing, perhaps even more so than the TIA impact, all he could say was that it probably wouldn't have helped my "Word / Name difficulty. But I am pleased that the frequencies of "difficulties" is diminishing, which is encouraging.
I can associate with your remarks peoples reaction to choosing the wrong word, I spent many years running Technical Training sessions for Engineers, in our Dealer Networks, and I was quite comfortable on my feet, unscripted, getting across what needed to be covered.
To now, not having a constant verbal flow, with every pause seeming like an Eternity, is most demoralizing.
Again thank you Lee, for your insight, and for your contribution to our IAP
Kindest regards,
Brian.

Thanks John for your kind and thoughtful remarks, comments and advice.
I will take your caution to heart, but what should I avoid "Pretty Girls", or "Garage Doors"?
Let's make it Garage Doors eh!?

Thanks for your comments Paul, You are Oh so right.
I have a "Car Less Garage" (aka Workshop) full of UFO's (Un- Finished Objects) many, if not most of these, fall into your definition of TIA's.
I am not permitted to let anyone into the "Workshop" under strict instructions from SWMBO, as she will get embarrassed, at the Chaos, and Stigma of "What will they Think".
So I must get "A Round TOIT" one Day.
Kindest regards,
Brian.

Avoid garage doors. At my age, the young girls avoid me! I am fortunate that one lady has stuck by me for a bit over 46 years.
Trust that everything will continue to improve for you. G'day, mate!

Hi Brian! Nice to see you back in the thick of it. Sorry I didn't respond to this earlier and I'm sorry I didn't respond until now. Hang tough my friend. My father was stationed in Australia during WWII on a sub and he always told me that the "Aussies" were always the toughest to fight with. I think most Australians have that fighting spirit, you included- Tom

Thank you Tom for your kind post, there is a very strong association of Mutual Respect, and Friendship between many Americans, as without the American War of Independence in 1776, Britain wouldn't have needed for a Penal Colony the Great Southern Land, that Lieutenant James Cook had "Discovered" and Mapped a large part of the Coast Line in 1770.

in 1778 Captain Arthur Philip brought a number of ships with Convicts, and a small Garrison.
He entered what a bay called by Cook and Sir Joseph Banks as Botany Bay, but as there was not a ready or easily discovered a supply of fresh water, he journeyed several miles north and entered a bay with a somewhat narrow opening through a Headland, into what was later named Port Jackson, which is now referred too as Sydney Harbour.
Here he found a good supply of Water, and it was there that they built the settlement now known as Sydney, so named after Lord Sydney.

Australians have fought alongside, the American Servicemen, in all Global Conflicts, since and including WW1.
This has developed into mutual respect, appreciation, friendship, and a great companionship, between both nations, and continues today for those who choose to pursue it, and in particular, to those who fought alongside one another.
Again thank you my Friend for your kind wishes and your PM's
Kindest regards,
Brian.

Thank you Chad, for your kind Post.
Daily I am improving, I feel I am recalling from the depths of my" Memory Bank", noticeably better every day.
I may never get back to what I was, but I think that may have naturally occurred, just with the passage of the years.
Kindest regards,
Brian.
