My Notice to LinkedIn

I noticed the LinkedIn to get my friends out of my stroke. I sent this out in September.

 

In December of 2019, I told my team I was retired from Total Rewards Exec.

 

For 6 months I enjoyed my retirement.

 

I had a stroke on June 8, 2020.

 

The damage is to the language area of my brain.

 

I have Aphasia.

 

I have been working on getting my language back.

 

My wife has been tremendous in helping me get things better.

 

Many friends and therapists have been helped me too.

 

I have been working every day to learn new things.

 

I have been relearning computers, photography, golf, and other things.

 

I have tried to talk to as many friends as possible.

 

I would like to keep in touch.
