Last night Marcy and I went to hear Martha Herbert speak about her brain research at TRANSCEND. It was interesting. I’d love Will to participate in some of her studies. But the story that made the most impact on me was one she told about a non-verbal autistic woman in Canada who had surgery for something unrelated to autism. When she woke up she looked at her mother and said, “I’m sorry I’ve been such a burden to you.” And told her she loved her. They had about sixteen hours together until she went to sleep and when she woke up she was back to normal.

That is interesting. I wish Will could tell you what he was thinking and have normal conversations.
