Sorry to hear about your husband--and I know things must be quite difficult for the both of you----I am somewhat familiar with a brain injury-as I personally have had experienced a concusion when an elevator door slammed closed on my head. I would suggest you get under the care of a neurologist-if you have not already. He most likely will be able to find a cure-for the seisures your huband may be having. It could be trial and error to find the right medication that works, and has the least side effects...Hang strong in the meantime, and just remember-there is a light at the end of the tunnel...
Best to all~
