My husband has 12 different types of seizures, blood clots and mini strokes.
I got some pamphlets on seizures and need to know if anyone has a husband that has health problems. When is a good age to talk to my son about his dad's health? I do not want to scare him but I do not want to traumatize him either and one day his dad is having a seizure in front of him. And my son is scared shitless as to what is going on. He is 7 and will be 8 in a couple of weeks. Need your imput. My Mother in law sad do not tell him but I have a friend whoes spouse has health problems and talked to them at a young age I think she talked to her oldest son at the age of 4. My mother in law said just to tell him be glad he is still here and enjoy having your dad around. What do you think?
