My project is a card I made for my husband because he is in the hospital after suffering 10 Grand Mal seizures. It's hard to watch him go through all the pain and suffering that comes after his seizures. During his seizures, he thrusts around, sometimes causing him to fall off a chair or fall out of bed. He chews up his mouth quite a bit so that it makes it hard to eat or drink anything for about a week afterwards. He fell out of bed this time which gave him a big bump on his head. Afterwards, he runs a fever and has a hard time remembering who I am or what my name is. I kid with him later that he always remembers Pugsley, our dog, before he remembers me. Sometimes the seizures cause a release of his body fluids. I just visited my husband today at the hospital and he got really angry at me because I told him I was going home and that he had to stay there. I have to say I don't like seeing him this way. While my mom and I were visiting him, he just sat and stared ahead or at the television. He spaces out and can't identify with people or things. His neurologist told me that sometime my husband may have a seizure and go into a coma and never wake up. It would be so hard to live without him, he is my world. I love him a lot. His father told me not to marry him because it would be hard living with Shawn but I told his father that I love Shawn and know what I am getting myself into. It hasn't been easy but I understand he goes through a lot and the fact is I love him. So now it's time to show the card I made for my husband, who totally supports my crafting and is very patient as I tell him about my crafting and the things that happen online.
