    I've to see how he goes now and hopefully keep him out of hospital

    Sue xx

  • I hope you manage that.

  • Oh Sue I am so sorry. You were so looking forward to having him home. What kind of infection has Archie got Sue?

    His speech will get worse though. So will the standing until he can no longer do it. The more worrying thing is his breathing.

    You have carers tonight I hope and tomorrow morning? Don't attempt to move him alone Sue. You are not in any condition to do that.

    I am really sorry that things have gone pear shaped so soon.

    Lots of love.

  • Hi Marie

    Not sure I think it's more chest but I spoke to dr and started him on antibiotics which cover chest and urine .Yeah his speak has got worst while he's been in hospital .

    Carers are coming at 8.15 for 1 hr then they are here 9/2 tomorrow for 1st visit

    Matron is coming to see both of us in morning so just have to see how things go.

  • So sorry Sue, sending you love and big hugs.

    It's my birthday today, so hard and strange without Keith, but I suppose I'll have to get used to it, the first anniversary of everything is going to be tough, 49 years with Keith and the first time without a card from him, I nearly got one out of the cupboard from a previous year but couldn't do it!

    Thinking of you both....Pat xx

  • Aww Pat, so very difficult and so so sad! However I do hope you manage to do a lil something nice for your birthday?! Much love x

  • Thank you pat

    And a very big happy birthday with love to you

    Sue xx

  • Happy Birthday, Pat.

    I hope you manage to have a good but different day. Its really hard the first anniversaries without him, I know.

    Big hug from Jean xx

  • Pat

    Happy Birthday! Sad as it will be for you I know. As you say the first Anniversary of everything will be hard. I found Garry's birthday very difficult. Now I have my daughter fretting over Father's Day! That is fast coming up? See how I am starting to worry about it? Yet I wasn't until my daughter got upset about it that I realised it was soon. I don't think anything will really change but the first of everything must surely be the hardest?

    Sorry for hijacking your post Sue!

  • Oh that's a shame, it's very hard to be without someone you have spent a lifetime together. Hugs and kisses for your birthday and hopefully you do something nice.x

  • I'm sorry Sue, like I keep saying nothing about Psp is easy, and just when you think everything is ok, wham, here we go again! Sending lots of love to you both x

  • Is there no end to what this horrible disease throws at the sufferer and consequently the carer too. I hope the antibiotics do the trick Sue, you could do with a break from all of these crappy incidents associated with PSP.

    Sending you a big hug
