Can excessive consumption of energy drinks cause someone to have a hole in their skull? That's the claim being made by a woman whose husband supposedly lost part of his skull after suffering an energy drink-related brain hemorrhage just as she was preparing to give birth.
A report from Yahoo News (via AOL) cited a post on the Endres Photography Facebook page from earlier this month, where a woman simply identified as Brianna related the heartbreaking challenges she had recently faced while expecting her first child with her husband Austin.
"Being pregnant is supposed to be one of the most amazing journeys you will ever embark on. 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."
After multiple rounds of life-saving brain surgery and further health events that Brianna said she and her family "weren't prepared for," Austin had somehow cheated death, waking up just as his wife delivered their son. According to Brianna, Austin finally got to meet their baby boy when he was 2-months-old, and while he has already returned home, he requires constant care from his wife.
"Our life isn't normal. There are doctors visits and hospital trips- so many that I loose [sic] count. But we are here. Fighting. 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."
