Awwww Fugedaboutit!!

You can tell I live in the NorthEast with a title like that.  No one else in the country bellows Fugadeaboutit in quite the same way.  We're a bit more, how shall I say it, salt of the earth.   At any rate, somehow it is fitting to begin this post in a round a bout way considering how the day went. 
 Working memory modelWorking Memory Image via Wikipedia
This morning, I wanted to write about my last day of Brain Fitness and my final scores including the ones on memory.  I went to grab the scrap of paper upon which I had written my scores and I found that I had lost it!  Boy, do I feel dumb.

I am not sure what it was... whether it was the end of doing a lot of cognitive therapy that has worn me out or a reflection of my scores:

Game    Targeted Skill    Improvement    Final Score
Hi Lo     Processing Speed    71%

Finished the game.
My Total Score for "Hi Lo" is about 51000.   In this regard, my hearing has improved by 72%!!!

 I've done all the stories at all Speech Levels and answered the questions pretty well. My total Score is 6020.

Sound Replay
 Usually, I can get 5 sounds in order and I am at Level 4 out of 5.  My best was getting 6 sounds in order. My total score is 11650.

Listen and Do

Easier Move    4    2
Harder Move    4    3

I am pretty happy about my processing speed.  But, I am not too happy about my working memory:  neither from my scores where I really didn't improve it or from my behavior!  I spent the day feeling a bit blue that I didn't get too far with my memory.

But, tomorrow is another day.  There are other programs out there that improve working memory.  We'll see what my audiologist has to say about this.
