In a Facebook post, a woman claims that her husband lost a large chunk of his head because of his energy drink consumption.
A terrifying claim by a woman on Facebook is causing a big debate online about the consumption of energy drinks. The woman, named Brianna, claimed her husband Austin is in a battle for his life after having to go in for emergency surgery as she was preparing to give birth to their child.
The husband had to be rushed to the hospital due to a brain hemorrhage, and Brianna said the doctors told her that his energy drink habit was the cause, necessitating an emergency operation. At the same time, she would have to go to deliver a child and wouldn’t have her husband by her side.
“Being pregnant is supposed to be one of the most amazing journeys you will ever embark on,” she wrote according to an AOL report. “You’re creating a new life. You are experiencing unconditional love for someone you have not even met. Austin and I were so excited to meet our little boy. To bring him home. To be a family.
“Surgery was already in motion… and after an agonizing 5 hour wait, we got to see him,” she added. “But while everyone was focused on the almost unrecognizable face hooked up to all sorts of machines and tubes, all I could see was his parents. I saw the light leave his mother’s eyes as she saw her motionless son laying in that hospital bed. I saw his father break down crying as he held onto his wife.
“They didn’t know if the life they created together would even wake up,” she continued, according to AOL. “Watching this family- my new family, who I have grown to love and be a part of, be so shattered and broken…that is the worst feeling I have ever felt.”
The good news is that her husband woke up after she delivered their son.
“Our life isn’t normal. There are doctors visits and hospital trips- so many that I loose count. But we are here. Fighting,” she wrote. “I wake up every day to take care of our beautiful little boy and my husband. I prepare the meals, do physical therapy, speech therapy, and occupational therapy. I help him with personal hygiene. I help him walk. I help him with every aspect of his life. And in between these tasks I take care of our very busy eight month old. It is hard, and I am tired, but we make the most of it. He isn’t the same man I fell in love with, but I still fall further everyday, We are fighting to help him recover. To make his life better. One day we will get there. Until then, I will never give up on him. Because love is selfless, and I love him more than life itself.”
