When Danielle Davis married the love of her life, she hoped for a happy future. Unfortunately, her joy was cut short when her husband, just seven months into their marriage, had a motorcycle accident and ended up on life support.
Doctors were not optimistic about his recovery, advising Danielle to consider taking him off life support. Despite this, Danielle decided to keep her husband, Matt, on life support, holding out for a miracle.
Expressing her belief, Danielle said, “I felt that God could carry him through, and God could handle the situation.”
Once the hospital was no longer an option, Matt was brought home, and Danielle, along with her mother-in-law, took on the responsibility of caring for him, ensuring he was as comfortable as possible. Danielle commented, “Let’s give him the best view in the world if he’s just going to be a body in a bed.”
As time passed and hope dwindled, Matt surprised everyone by waking up. His ability to open his eyes was considered a miracle. He then began a gradual journey of psychological and physical recovery. Danielle felt reassured about her husband’s unchanged personality when they asked him what he wanted to eat, and he responded in a barely audible whisper, saying, “I’m not kidding, he says, ‘buffalo chicken wrap from Cheddar’s,'” which had always been his favorite. “We all turned around because we understood what he said.”
Later, they enrolled him in another rehab program for two and a half months, and he left on his own with a walker, Danielle mentioned.
Although it’s taken some time for Matt to regain his sense of humor and long-term memory, he doesn’t recall dating or marrying Danielle. They’re essentially rediscovering each other. She calls him “Mattie” or “cake,” and he calls her “baby” or “doughnut.”
Engaging in activities like playing Scrabble and attending yoga classes together, they enjoy each other’s company. Recently, he started driving a stick shift car for fun because he loves cars, as Danielle pointed out.
Despite the difficulties, Matt’s sense of humor remains, and he even has a lighthearted piece of advice for husbands, “Take out the trash because there might be a day when you can’t.”
Matt’s story is a testament to the power of prayer and faith in God. A bystander to his incredible journey remarked, “Just have faith; nothing is too big for our God.” Another added, “With God, anything is possible.”
