Yesterday as we were driving to Kessler for rehab, I was talking to Paul about this strange disorder. I asked him if he knew that there is a section of the brain that just deals with recognizing faces.
He started to gesture wildly and tried telling me something.
I told him that one of the other caregivers had mentioned that their family member had suffered this lose...not being able to recognize faces...not be able to identify family and friend's faces.
It's called prosopagnosia.
Paul pointed to himself....and said "ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!"
As if to say...."you finally got it....I can't recognize faces!!"
I just can't believe that we...I, the doctors, staff...etc hadn't figure this out in 17 months since his strokes.
One more point for the opposing team!
