My World Stopped

   Everyone knows that I’m in a relationship with Charles Baker. He’s the love of my life. He proposed to me this past Christmas Eve. It was so perfect so magical, the most awesome moment in my life, a dream of mine for a romantic Christmas proposal.
Anyway, on Monday July 3rd 2017, I talked to him on his lunch break and everything seemed fine other than he was taking a little longer to respond to me. I didn’t think anything of it at the time. After the call, I continued my day as normal working on some graphics for a client. About an hour later I received a phone call from his work. They told me he had passed out at work and they called an ambulance to bring him to St. Peter’s Hospital.

   I felt my hear stop, like my whole world stopped. OMG my boo bear is hurt and in the hospital. I called the ER at St. Peter’s Hospital and spoke with the nurse caring for him. She told me he had a grand mal seizer (a grand mal seizure — also known as a generalized tonic-clonic seizure — features a loss of consciousness and violent muscle contractions) at work,  his right eye was swollen and black and blue, he’s confused, and has no idea what was going on. I had to get there ASAP.
  So, I called his brother’s girlfriend Coleen and they picked me and my son Stephen up. When we arrived at the hospital, they only would allow two visitors in his room. His brother Earl and I went in to see him. I couldn’t believe how bad his eye looked. It was crazy like it wasn’t real. Like I was in a horrible nightmare.

   My poor boo bear I felt so bad for him. The nurse came in and asked him a question. He didn’t answer, looked around, looked at me, and had another grand mal seizer. It was defiantly very scary. I felt like crying, watching the man I love go through that and I can do nothing but watch and wait for it to be over. When it was over they gave him some medication by IV to calm him so he could sleep. They admitted him into the hospital for four days. I was by his side as much as I could be but, wanted to never leave his side. He’s home now doing much better and we have a journey together to find out why he has these seizers. I am a little nervous every day for him. What happens if he has another grand mal seizer? What will I do if it does happen again? All I do know is that I love him with all of my heart, I am here for him to help him, to comfort him in any way I possibly can. He is my soul mate.
