Status - Marie Nelson!


Dearest Friends,

Wanted to send a status report regarding Marie_14. Marie has broken her right arm. She will have to have surgery (don't know when scheduled). She has limited typing ability but I thought everyone might want to let her know they are thinking of her.

Please write to her and wish her well. I am sure she will respond when she can.

We are all here for each other no matter what. PSP be damned. (Marie lost Gary last year)

Oh Marie! What a bummer! And bet you are right handed too!

You will find it difficult to do most things, dressing, toileting, brushing hair, showering, teeth brushing, making a sandwich, so make sure you are given help! Hope your surgery is soon and successful!

This is the voice of experience here! Did same, my left wrist, 3 years ago - I am left handed! - so know what you are going through and have in store.

Learn to use the other hand, laborious but satisfying! And frustrating too.

I spent the time reading and relaxing after I had filled in all the insurance forms to claim back costs of a missed holiday!

Private message me when you can if you want to have a scream! Or maybe I can help.

Big hug

Thanks for posting Cuttercat! Of course my reply should have gone to Marie but I don't know how to do that!!

PSP is a horrible illness. I wish I could say something that could make things easier for you. What I can tell you is that you are not alone. I hope this helps a little.

my wife has PSP and from what her doctor has told us, she has lived longer with PSP than anyone. 16 years and still using a walker. Wheelchair if we go to Costco…

Sending much love across the pond to a sister in need of a hug. Xxx

Sorry to hear about this, Marie! Hope the surgery is done soon and you're on the mend.

Dear Marie. Sending you lots of hugs and hope you're not in pain. Get well soon. Maddy x

Dear Marie, what a nasty surprise this is with the xmas season on your doorstep I hope you will not have to wait too long before the operation...and that there will be enough helping hands around . Take care And mend quickly, love , Anne Baer

Marie, I am soooo sorry. I have been out of state, visiting my daughter and family in Portland, Oregon. It rained all 7 days I was there....which was nice.

Keeping you in my prayers for quick healing.

Blessings, Margarita, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Thank you, Cuttercat, for the news about Marie.

Marie, I am so sorry to hear about your arm and I hope everything heals well and quickly. What a lousy thing to have happen especially at this time of the year when things are already extremely difficult. One day at a time will get you through.

Mottsie.... You are hysterical. Thanks for the laugh.
