Kari, I can only imagine how hard it must be to be unable to express yourself and do the things your mind is capable of. The fact that your mind is so sharp is a great advantage. It means your mental faculties are still there. The short term memory loss, while discouraging, is totally normal for someone in your position.
To see your email, which must have take patience and fortitude to compose is evidence of your willpower, and is exactly the type of effort that proves you will persevere and make your recovery necessary.
We're all pulling for you Kari, we want you to enjoy the company of your family and friends and know we will be able to see you posting here again. I wish you all the will and strength of mind you will need to accomplish your goals.
On the selfish side, we miss you, and want you back. Take care, hang in there, the 7F "family" is all rooting for you.
Thank you Dinesh, please keep us up to date as much as possible.
