QUOTE 1)There was extreme rigidity of the axial musculature...only vague available motion in the neck, no voluntary movemant in the limbs. Perhaps the most striking was the profound facial masking-which we now know should not have been confused with apathy. Virtually aphonic, Mr. Lowe could articulate no words, but rather only, with consideralbe effort, an occasional noise, a kind of ah...Isolated circumstances - the mention of his name, notes of particular pieces of music, the touch of another human being - managed on occasion to briefly summon him, but these were rare and transient, lasting only a moment or two. The rest of the time he remained in a profoundly eventless place, deprived of all sense of history and happening and self-encysted, cocooned, enveloped in this metaphorical if not physiological equivalent of sleep...or death. (A before picture of Leonard appears on the screen) This was his condition when first seen by me in a remote bay of this hospital. And the quality of his life for the last 30 years. (An after picture of Leonard appears on the screen) 2)Now? 1)Whenever you're ready 2)My name is Leonard Lowe. It has been explained to me that I have been away for quite some time. I'm back.
