Last evening I asked my husband what he wanted to do for his birthday this Friday and he just shook his head and said I don't know. I got to thinking about his upcoming birthday and realized that next month will be one year since he had a seizure and brain surgery to remove a non-cancerous tumor. How lucky we are that he is here to celebrate another birthday. How lucky am I to have him here to complain to and about at times. I still think about that day when he he had his seizure and how it could have been so much worse. He had it at home, on the couch and not in a car driving or on his bike, which he JUST finished riding that day.
God was watching over him for sure and all through the ordeal. I re-learned how powerful prayer is that month as well. Friends were putting him on prayer lists at their churches, my facebook friends sent out prayer chains online and of course we had the support of family. During that same time, my grandmother passed away as well so it was an extra stressful time as well. I wasn't able to help my mom with the funeral and her estate as my husband was having brain surgery.
I have been with my husband for over 31 years...married for 26 of them. We have been together since we were 14...and still going strong. I remember when he was having the seizure, I yelled to him that he wasn't allowed to leave me as we weren't done being together yet...and we aren't.
