My MRI, my brain, & my rehab

I had my stroke on 7 March 2008, leaving me unable to speak and my whole right side paralyzed.

Here is my brain right after the stroke (bright spot is the damaged area). (For the functions for various areas of the brain, and the problems that can result when those areas are damaged, you can refer to this discussion and chart. For most strokes, see the frontal lobes.)

Here are some pictures of me during my rehab.

Physical rehab (PT, learning to walk):

Speech rehab:

 Occupational rehab (OT, hand):
