Daddy has been bed bound for several months now, and very weak, unable to feed himself, doubly incontinent, etc. His psp includes the slight dementia I've read doesn't happen with all psp sufferers. I asked his wife and she said he didn't ever show any emotion about the diagnosis. I remember when he told me that if the doctors were right, it was some horrible stuff (the psp) and he looked very worried. I've read a lot of sufferers are on antidepressants. Yesterday I asked him how he was doing and he looked me right in the eye and said "great"! He said it like he meant it. I left the room and cried, again for the 100 millionth time. I worry about his feelings about dying and about how much psp has destroyed him, little by little. I have no idea what to say to him and I wouldn't ever want to make him cry even to bring his whatever kind of feelings to the surface, not even if it's the bittersweet tears of verbalizing the lifelong love he and I have shared. I don't want to make him cry. So what exactly is my question I think it got lost within. Thanks for listening and for any comments. Merry Christmas to those of us who believe!!!!! I'm grateful to have Daddy here again this year. If he wants to be here then I want him here too.
