Newlywed Doesn't Give Up On Husband in Coma, And He Recovers
"I'm sure glad I married her."
Danielle Davis was married to her husband, Matt just seven months when he was badly injured in 2011 in a horrific motorcycle accident, leaving him in a coma with multiple broken bones.
Doctors gave Danielle the grim news that odds of his recovery weren't good, and told her to take him off life support and let him die. Not giving up so quickly. Danielle decided to keep him on life support, and the next day he woke up.
Matt didn't remember the accident, or anything from the past three years including his wife, his wedding, and the death of his father two years earlier. He had suffered a brain injury that leaves most people in a permanent vegetative state.
Danielle took Matt home where she and her mother cared for him around the clock. He slowly began to improve, and after three months uttered his first words, "I'm trying." His personality eventually began to surface again when one day they asked him what he wanted to eat and Danielle recalled, "I kid you not, he said, 'Buffalo chicken wrap from Cheddar's.'" That was one of Matt's favorite foods.
After months of rehabilitation, Matt learned to walk and four years later, he's started driving a stick shift car again. He does yoga and has made a trip to Disney World.
He hasn't regained the memory he lost, but he's gotten to know his wife all over again and says he wouldn't be here if it wasn't for her. Matt said, "I"m sure glad I married her."
