My husband was admitted to the hospital today after spending the day in the emergency room.Yesterday his physical therapist told me his mid back was sensitive. We were going to have it checked but we were both tired and he seemed ok. This morning he was listless and burning up. His legs were like jelly. Luckily I had a handyman coming over and I had him help me. The nurse told me that at his age and with PSP the infection can spread through his body quickly and his systems could start shutting down. He is on an IV of antibiotics. The nurses told me to go and eat & sleep. That I looked awful. I felt bad leaving him but I was starving and had not slept the night before. So I came home. But once here my appetite was gone and I cannot sleep. With all his awful falls, stitches, contusions and concussions, this unnerved me more. I have never seen him like this and I am scared.
