PSP does indeed have a huge impact on recovery from any sort of infection. It seems to knock down the PSP sufferer a lot more than the average person. Whenever dad got any infection throughout the course of his time with PSP he took a lot longer to recover and when he did his PSP seemed have accelerated in my eyes. It was definitely the case.

Hi Kris -

Yes, any infection (or even stress) seemed to knock Tony down, then he'd be stable a bit until the next thing.

Hopefully as your husband settles to being at home again he will gradually show some improvement.
