I'm not sure I should discuss the findings of the MRI if you haven't talked with your neurologist. It shows you had trauma to the left side of the brain which at least explains the speech problem. The encephalomalacia would be no surprise considering your tbi and therapy will help with your speech and any headaches. It must have been a significant blow to the head but it could have been worse. Trust the neurologist to be thorough in discussing the MRI with you.
