In our twenty-third year of marriage my husband went into surgery for a rare appendix cancer and came out without any memories of our life. Internal bleeding caused a lack of oxygen to his brain and the resulting traumatic brain injury destroyed his desire to communicate and completely altered his personality. Gone was any ability to speak, emote, remember. Lost to him were his past, his passion and his occupation. Who he was, wasn't. These essays are a taste of our journey to discover what lies beyond identity. Coming soon: Sonya & Richard's memoir, Wondering Who You Are.
