Why Do We Ask Why??
Meet my grandson, James (Bubby). Bubby was born with Spina Bifida. When the doctors closed the hole in his spine, he ended up with hydrocephalus, and that is when the trouble started. A shunt needed to be inserted into his brain, and the doctor doing the surgery nicked a blood vessel. This resulted in a bleed into the brain and subsequent aneurysm. When they clamped off the aneurysm, it was like Bubby had a stroke. Now he is unable to walk independently, his right side is much weaker than the left, and he has learning disabilities and a seizure disorder. And he never questions "why". Here he is with the Mario Brothers quilt I made him. He loves video games.
