Subject: News on Marian Button
From: Surreysinger
Date: 09 Aug 10 - 07:30 PM

I've had one or two enquiries from various sources about the health of Marian Button, traditional singer from Kent. As some of you are obviously aware, Marian suffered what has now been diagnosed as a stroke on Thursday while at Sidmouth Folk Festival. This is just to let you know that she is still in hospital at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital Wonford at the moment, and was due to have a scan of some sort either today or tomorrow. There is no news as yet about her returning to the Kent neck of the woods (either hospital or home). As soon as anything further in the way of news occurs, I'll post details here (and on Facebook for those who are friends of mine on there). As far as I understand it from my contact with them, the hospital in question does not have bedside phones, and they cannot divulge information to any except next of kin, so it is not worthwhile ringing them at the moment.

Marian Button was taken ill at Sidmouth FolkWeek last Thursday with a suspected stroke which has now been confirmed, but not thought too severe. She has some weakness on the left side, mixing up of speech, and is understandably very confused.

Husband Geoff tells me (on Sunday) that she is due for more scans this week at Exeter, and now has her luggage which we at The Volunteer took care of.

I daresay Surreysinger will add any more updates.

No more news as yet, although I understand from Geoff that Marian had a visit in hospital from members of the Claque who,of course, live locally on Monday afternoon.
Threads combined.

Well lets try again!!!Poor old Marion ,lovely lovely lady and what a singer. Whenever she comes to stay with us its like having a Walking I Pod in the house, she never stops singing superbly."Oh dont you know this song? Everybody sings it" when she has just knocked you sideways with a superb ballad that you have never heard before.
On a par with Brian Dawson as a National Treasure. We are sorry that you wont be with us for Jacky's Birthday Party this weekend we'll save you a bit of cake. Lets hope that you will be well enough to come in November for the Dungworth visit with Mo and co. Lots of love from Jacky and Nic

Sue - best place to find Marian at Sidmouth on most days is the lunchtime session at the Volunteer (and quite often the evening one as well) - it's where she spends most of her time. And I certainly will pass on all these extra good wishes when I finally get the chance.

I have been unable to get online until now - the first time my mobile broadband has managed to find a signal - and just want to wish Marian both mine and Jan's best wishes for a a speedy and full recovery.

Thanks for the messages everyone - I'll print them out and pass them on to Marian at the end of the week. In the meantime, Geoff, Marian's husband, has just told me that the hospital have now said (after another battery of tests) that it wasn't a stroke after all. However, they have identified a problem with her thyroid gland, which was causing the unsteadiness, and are conducting yet more tests. In the meantime Marian will be in the hospital in Exeter until at least the weekend. More info as I have it.

"they have identified a problem with her thyroid gland, which was causing the unsteadiness,"

Gosh, I imagine those close to her are glad to know it wasn't a stroke, they can be quite harmful and require lengthy rehab. Hopefully a thyroid problem can be treated fairly simply with drugs and she'll be back to strength shortly. Hopefully I'll get to hear Marion sing sometime too, I've heard lots of praise for her!

Thyroid issues can cause TIAs mini strokes that can cause weakness, confusion and significant memory loss. Hope the docs monitor her very carefully and that she is diligent in reporting how she feels once treatment has settled.
