Story

In Nicky's words
" MS has left permanent lesions on her spine, she can't walk, her bladder has stopped working, her bowel doesn't work and now she has dis motility of her stomach and intestinal failure, which means she will not be able to eat or drink again, on top of everything else that she is coping with. She is fed by TPN through her heart, which now means regular blood sugar tests and I am also scared that her liver will be the next to fail. She is an A* student and had a budding future ahead of her until this disease attacked her. Life is just cruel. I have to watch her sob has she watches her friends on FB prepare for their futures.
When Paige finally gets out of hospital, which she is now on her 10 month.. I will have to do 4 hourly checks on her feeding pump through out the night, drain her catheter and giver her all her medicines & Help her shower because the carer is only to cover me whilst I'm at work.

Paige's story.
Her illness began in 2011. She was dragging her feet, she developed curviture of the spine. It was only following Paige falling twice. Both times she landed face first, damaging her teeth. It was like someone had flipped a switch.
She was taken for an MRI. The scan showed multiple lesions on her brain & spine. Paige was diagnosed with MS.
Managing, medically, someone under 16 with MS is difficult. A lot of the trusts refused to find medication
Despite relapses (waking up unable to move her legs) Paige managed to take, and pass her GCSEs. All be it not the A* she had been predicted. She went to her prom, gained a place in 6th Form. Despite being in a wheelchair or crutches, it looked likely that Paige would do her A levels, go to University & do medicine. She managed one term. The delay in getting treatment means MS has attacked multiple organs.

Nicky is such a selfless person. Always willing to help anyone.
As Nicky's friend, its hard to see her struggle. Wanting to nurse Paige. But unable, financially, to become her carer.

Nicky is loved by all that know her. A fantastic hostess and there for everyone. As friends we are powerless to alleviate the pressure she is under. After 10 months Paige will be coming home. This is to support the family financially. Nicky can concentrate on Paige.
