12 Days of Thanksgiving, Day Nine
My husband is the survivor of a serious illness. When he was 11 he developed spinal menningitis. He was told at least twice that he just had the flu, but when he collapsed with a 104 fever, it was determined that his illness was far worse. He was hopsitalized for over a month and also developed a staph infection on his brain, which required surgery. He still has a scar and a small hole in his skull from this surgery. While, he still has some lasting side effects from his illness, he was able to recover and continue with his life.
I am so thankful he was healed and that modern medicine was available to help him get better so that one day I would meet him and marry him and we could have our beautiful child (who is turning out more and more like his daddy every day).
