When my mother had Guillain Barre in 1978, she was completely paralyzed for quite some time. My dad made a chart of letters. The only things she had control over were her eyes, so she would fix her gaze, one letter at a time, to be able to communicate. My heart goes out to you. I can sense your brilliance, compassion and desire to continue to learn and push this field forward. Thank you for sharing this piece.
