Did this sighting have anything to do with my husbands illness?

the first week of October, 2008, my son, my husband and myself were sitting in my living room at about 8:00 pm. We had sliding glass doors out of our living room that went directly into our backyard. Suddenly our yard was filled with a bright bluish white light that got the attention of my son and myself. When we looked out the door, a glowing egg shaped craft, that could only have held one or two beings, was gliding silently through our yard.

We live in the city so we do not have a huge yard. After it passed out doors, I ran to the front winidow to see where it would go....but it never came out from between the houses, which leads me to believe it took off after we saw it. Strange to me was the fact that although he was sitting with us...my husband did not see the craft.

Without listening to each others account, my son and I gave a description of what we saw to my husband. We both saw the same thing. I am an armed security guard at Independence Hall and have been trained to observe and report things that I see. I dont think 2 of us could be crazy at the sametime.

Why didn't my husband see it? I have no idea!

The reason I've decided to report this now is that about 2 weeks after the sighting, on Oct. 14,2008, my husband was hospitalized with a very rare brain fungal infection. His doctors had no idea how he contracted it...as it appeared nowhere else in his body, as it normally should.

He was in a coma for 2 months before they could figure out how to treat it. My husband died this past August due to this infection. I cant help but wonder if this sighting, that he said he didn't see, had anything to do with it.
