On this day last year my wife fell. Fractured T12 vertebra. In a brace for 3 months. Resulted in me assisting in every transfer 24/7 from that time on. Although still constantly "falling" (any direction, mainly backwards), I am now present to hold her. So...no broken bones or bruises in 12 months. BUT.....my care level is now high intensity. I have "some" help, called "high care in the home" (15 hours/week). Lots of family support, but still feel somewhat alone. Now 5 years into this despicable PSP disease. Taking one day at a time - hoping for my wife's sake it will not stretch out! She's ready but the disease complications will take their own course. She wants no interventions! Hopefully, a lot of you will understand our stance and my "subdued venting".
