Today is Valentine’s Day. The U.S. is not the only country that celebrates Valentine’s Day (Latin America, Japan, India, and Lebanon are just a few). Some countries may celebrate on another day.
February 14th is not just Valentine’s Day for me. It is also my husband’s birthday. He gets called a Valentine Baby. He is my Valentine, especially since his wife has epilepsy.
I want to say thank you for the best husband. He married me knowing I had epilepsy. My epilepsy was under control while we were dating and the first four years of our marriage. I started having my “auras” and stopped driving. That is where my husband’s love helped me be strong. Finally after trying a numerous types of medications and combinations of medications, I decided to have brain surgery. He stood by my side when others would say, “are you sure?” He saw me bald and with a huge scar with staples where they put a plate in the place of my skull.
I couldn’t look in the mirror. He looked at me everyday, and still said “I love You”. I went seizure free for three years after my surgery. Unfortunately, they came back. Not as many per month. He is still with me through the thick and thin. I will always Love Him.
