Friday Finds - Road to Recovery

We're closing in on the end of the second long week at the hospital.  We've been focused on supporting my mother-in-law and when we're not at the hospital, all things brain and recovery overshadow our minds.  Therefore, Friday Finds this week is an extension of how my brain has been occupied.  I found two fun brain related items on Etsy - a cool print that reminds me of how complicated brains are, and a fun stamp that I can envision using for note cards.  The book is a find suggested by both our friend Patti and my mom.  Dr. Taylor is a neuroanatomist who experienced a stroke herself.  The book describes her experience having a stroke and her subsequent recovery.  Her experience, combined with her scientific background, has been very useful to us.

Clockwise from L:
Amazon - My Stroke of Insight, by Jill Bolte Taylor, Ph.D.
Curious Prints - Vintage Anatomy Print
TTYR - Anatomical Brain Rubber Stamp


  1. I have heard really good things about that book and have been meaning to read it - maybe now's the time. Keeping your MIL and family in my thoughts. (Hugs)

  2. Jill Bolte Taylor came to speak at the lecture series that I help put on here at SMU last year. I'm working to see if I can get a copy of the video to email to you!

  3. Thanks Stephanie! That'd be great!
