Anesthesia-Filled Man Re-Falling In Love With Wife Goes Viral

By  | 


After a hernia operation in August, Jason Mortensen awoke to find a beautiful woman sitting beside his bed. As one might guess, this was a thrilling discovery given how confusing and peculiar having surgery and being in a hospital can be. Fortunately, the woman was kind. And Jason was intrigued.

“Did the doctor send you? Man, you are eye candy,” he says, excited. “You’re the prettiest woman I’ve ever seen.”

The woman giggled as if she knew a secret he didn’t, but Jason continued, “Are you a model? Who are you? What’s your name?”

“I’m Candice. I’m your wife,” she replied.

His response: “Man I hit the jackpot!”

Come to find out, Jason was not speaking to some gorgeous stranger — he was talking to his wife. That’s right: the wonderfully lovely woman who had been sitting by his bedside was actually the woman he had been sharing his life with for six years, making this one of the cutest viral videos I have seen in entirely too long.

Jason posted the video after re-falling in love with his beloved wife, along with this caption:

“I had a hernia repair to fix residual tears from a previous surgery. I wish I could remember this but I was definitely out of it.

This was my fifth surgery within our six years of marriage and she’s been by my side through all of it. In a previous surgery I suffered a severe complication and we didn’t know if I’d ever function the same again. She is the love of my life.”

Let’s say it together: Awwww! I love happy love stories, and it is so wonderful to see two people so excited to be together. The video has now been viewed close to 1 million times, so I would speculate that the rest of the Internet agrees.
