She just updated her blog with a message indicating she’s back and she’s on the road to recovery — there are some stumbling blocks, of course, but overall, she’s doing better:
I was kicked out of speech therapy for speaking too well. But then I fell a few pegs and now I don’t speak so well. Most of the time people can’t understand me. So this Fall Semester I’m devoting my time to aggressive speech therapy again because I only have until November to regain my speech ability. Yes, you have a year to recover and after that you’re stuck (see Broca’s aphasia).
I can only imagine what Kate’s going through, but no doubt it helps to be surrounded by positive support. Who needs prayers when you have so many people who care about you by your side?
Get back to normal soon, Kate!
