This is a Finding Words story!

My husband is writing this. 9 years ago at age 27 I was a newly engaged professional actor visiting my fiance in New York. I suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm and massive stroke. I was in a coma and couldn’t breathe on my own. I continue to recover but am still unable to functionally read or write or use my right hand. I have a lot of trouble finding words when I speak. I attend speech and physical therapy, got my drivers license last year, and have been married for six years.
