Imagine the kind of love these two share when, after surgery, this man doesn’t remember a thing and sees his wife for the first time—he thinks he’s won the lottery.

Would we choose our loves all over again, if our memory was wiped clean?

Would we see them once again as the most perfect thing we’ve ever come across?

More importantly, if we aren’t waking up each and every day telling the person we love most how we feel, the way this man has told his wife, why not?

Let’s remember (and remind him or her) we’re in love.

    I laughed outloud at this – thanks for sharing. So cute.

    Yes, to be in love (or like) with new eyes every day! Something to remember each time we encounter our beloved… or at least every morning. The secret to a long, happy relationship?

    What a strange idea to film your long time husband when he wakes up from surgery!!!

    I have been a nurse for a long time. Never have I seen a patient wake up from surgery and not remember their spouse unless, they had some pre-existing cognitive deficit. I thing we are being played…..And, by the way, what kind of hospital allows a patient to eat a cracker lying down post op????

    I agree. Seems fake. Then again I'm a ice-hearted cynic, so maybe that's just me.
