For the last year or longer Daddy has had a HUGE issue with, this is gross.. lots of mucus flowing from his nose when he'd eat and (he or his wife..) would wipe his nose with napkins 6-8 times during dinner. And of course, excess mucus is a psp symptom. After a year of this at EVERY meal, it suddenly stopped, several weeks ago, just totally stopped. I wish other symptoms would suddenly disappear but if there's been any other noticeable change recently, it would be he talks even less now and is unable to help assist moving him from bed to wheelchair to recliner. I know psp isn't an exact science and so little is really known about it in the medical community, not all sufferers have all symptoms thank goodness, but, it's almost cruel, this small false hope. HOW and why would a major and consistent symptom suddenly disappear! I mean it's not called progressive for nothing that's for sure. So how? And it's taken me weeks to DARE share this with you all because, don't want to JINX this tiny bit of a "GOOD luck" blessing for Daddy. I and we are VERY thankful for any "lucky" breaks in this world of psp.
