Good evening everyone.

An update:

I got to talk with the Dr. today about the full report from the exam I went through.

My attention, focus, and processing speed were where the most improvements were made. My short term memory was improved as well, but not nearly as much as the other areas. My working memory also showed improvement.

My long term memory has been listed as severely impaired. When we talked about it today, I had written notes down to ask some questions about the tests. I wanted to know which tests I didn't perform well with. I literally couldn't remember which tests I took. There were word lists that I could recall some of the words just after the list was read to me. However, I didn't remember more than a couple after a 15-30 min break. The same problem with a story that was read to me. I could repeat certain conditions in the story just after hearing it, but couldn't recall the story after a break. Visual recall, remembering pictures I had to draw, was the same as the other memory problems.

So that's where I am now. We will be focusing on more memory strategies to try and store information in long term memory, and improve the working and short term aspects as well.

Really stoked to hear about your improvements, man. Really smart of you to right down your questions to make sure you got the information that you wanted from the doc. I'll keep praying for you, bro!

Here's an update from my last medical review. I'm reading from the report. I've been learning that I have not been able to remember a lot of things. It's a little depressing because it is hard to grasp just how much stuff I'm not able to remember on a daily basis.

I felt everyone that has followed my progress and given me strength through support and prayers would like to see the results thus far.

Attention Processing: mildly impaired 8th %tile

Semantic Verbal Fluency: <1%ile

Phonemic verbal fluency: 19th %ile

Cognitive Flexibility: 55th %ile

basic numerical processing with components of visual scanning, visual attention and motor functions: moderately impaired 1%ile

General language abilities: moderately impaired 4th%ile

Picture naming 70th%ile

Visuospatial Processing (perceiving, analyzing and metally manipulating visual information such as patters, designs, and where things are in space. 55th%ile

Constructional abilities for visual stimuli (complex figures) high average 75th%ile

Memory: verbal and visual encoding into memory severely impaired at <1%ile

Immediate memory for rote verbal information also severely impaired at <1%ile

Immediate memory for verbal information placed in a context (i.e. stories) was severely impaired at <1%ile.

Recall and recognition tasks were delayed, all functions severely impaired <1%ile.

Cognition has likely reached maximum medical improvement.

Just as an update...

I had another neuro exam this past Monday. I'm not sure how well I did. I will go for a medical review on May 1st.
