Heartbreaking Cruel Illness ........
Mum was diagnose 6 years ago with PSP although I beleave she has had
this illness for around 10 years now. We were first told Mum was suffering from mild strokes , then Parkinsons and finally when it was too late to prepare Mum and us as a family we were told Mum has PSP.
I get very angry still when I talk about PSP and find it hard to accept that my wonderful strong Mum has been dealt the PSP card of life.
Mum can not do anything for herself anymore , earlier on this year Mum had a Peg inserted for feeding as she was losing so much weight. This has had it's pro's and con's Mum had complications after the op and is always pulling out her peg !!!! but she has settled down now and is gaining weight but is now completely nil by mouth - She misses her cup of Tea so much ....
We have good days and bad days . Bad days when Mum get another Chest, Ear or Urine infection Good when she smiles and blows us a kiss Goodbye.
I miss hearing my Mums voice , miss her advice and telling me off !!!!
We take each day as it comes and every day we have her we thank God for.
