Matt David and his wife Danielle were a regular young couple in love, when tragedy occurred. This young couple came out of it on the other side, and they realized just how deep their love was for one another. Goes to show, you can’t choose what happens to you but you certainly can choose your response to the situation.
Matt was in a horrible motorcycle accident that left him with horrible injuries and in a coma. Doctor’s told his wife Danielle that he had really low chances of surviving and even if he does survive, there is no telling what shape he will be in if he comes out of the coma.
Doctors kept telling Danielle that she should just pull the plug on Matt to put him out of his suffering, but also to save on resources that could be going to someone who is guaranteed to survive. Danielle did not listen to the medical staff though.
‘I knew that God could get us through that,’ she explained. ‘I didn’t think it was too big for God’. So she took Matt out of the hospital and moved him home where she and his mother shared the burden of taking care of him 24/7.
One day, Danielle heard these two words come out of his mouth ‘I’m trying’. And in that moment she was validated in her decision to not give up on her husband.
When he did finally come out of his coma he did not recall the last three years of his life, but the couple is happy and healthy now, their love stronger than ever.
Matt today attends therapy and is living life to the fullest. Danielle has written about her husband ‘One conversation with Matt will change your life. He has a servant’s heart and a love for people. He never complains or feels anger about his circumstance’. So inspiring!
