Finding the Right Words When a Stroke Leads to Aphasia

“Excel, bell.” Pause. “Excel, bell.” I’d called my spouse, Mark, from a training I was attending in an adjacent state, and he just kept repeating those same two words.

Clearly, something wasn’t right, but I had no idea what. Like a lot of medical diagnoses, until something impacts you or a loved one directly, you may never have heard the term before.

Such is the case with aphasia, which is what Mark lives with permanently since it turned out his speech difficulties were the result of a major stroke affecting the left side of his brain.
