WIFE WITH EPILEPSY

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.
