Great programme I love Mary and she seems such a lovely lady . I always presumed Mary had arthrites in her hand and was very interested in the polio connection ,
I knew she had contracted polio when she was young after i heard her on
http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/features...ind-a-castaway

I watched her carefully after I listened to that and I did notice how she held utensils and how one side was weaker than the other

Although Polio is almost eradicated there is a kick in the teeth for a lot of polio victims which is Post Polio Syndrome
after years of being as well as you can be you can lose all that was gained after the virus first hit

after getting out of calipers, iron lungs and walking frames and living a full life you can go back into splints and wheel chairs quicker than greased lightening
