Against All Odds – Doctors Said Give Up – Wife Said No, Refused To Pull Plug, Husband Wakes Up During Hymns…

never give upAn amazing and inspirational story of hope, against all odds Danielle Josey Davis had been married only seven months when a devastating motorcycle accident left her husband on life support and in a coma.

Doctors recommended letting Matt Davis die because there was a 90 percent chance he would never wake up, but Danielle told ABC News she decided it just wasn’t time yet. Then, one day, he woke up.

“I’m sure glad I married her,” Matt Davis told ABC News today, though he doesn’t remember Danielle from before the 2010 crash that caused his traumatic brain injury.

Danielle was 24 when the accident happened, and had only started dating Matt, then 23, two months before their wedding.

Matt’s father had died two years before the accident, and his mother was too ill to take care of him, Danielle said. But Danielle made the decision to keep him on life support and eventually fought to get him into rehab and to take him home, moving back into her mother’s house.

“If we’ve got to bring him home, let’s make sure he has the best view in the world,” she remembered telling her mother. “If he’s going to be a body in a bed, let’s give him something to look at.” (then something amazing happened)

Life is filled with challenges and tests, that’s why it’s called life.  

We each have something far stronger within us than we ever give ourselves credit for.  Faith allows us to look toward that which we cannot see and choose strength to believe in ourselves and that which is hidden.  

At any moment everything can change, and instantaneously are faced with our own vulnerabilities and insignificance.  But we are all spiritual beings holding within us something called freewill. 

We can choose…

What we call life is an assembly of these choices.

    This does not compute with the Obozo Death Panel.

    This couple may have married on short acquaintance, but this young man won the lottery when he took this young woman as his wife!

    Who wouldn’t want such a woman as this as his wife? “In sickness and in health, till death do us part!” I would like to think this married man gets his body and mind back as close to pre accident levels so that he can love his wife as much as it appears she is loving and has been loving him!

    Maybe there is a gay couple baker business that would want to provide a beautiful cake once a year till such recovery takes place in this heterosexual, classical, spiritual marriage in which God may be overseeing and offering strengths unknown to some.

    Rolling Stone magazine might want to send a “veteran” reporter to do a major story and what constitutes “real love, true love, unconditional love” between a man and woman…for a change!

    Even Don Lemon of CNN might do a segment and not introduce homosexual dynamics in his overviews.

    Perhaps Rev. Al Sharpton might want to do a special where he suggests this marriage as a model for Black people (or people of color…) to emulate.

    Why even B. Hussein O. might go before the cameras and tell a true story using that family’s travail as the starting point on the subject matter of “responsibility to others” or something akin to it.

    The power of prayer lives on!

    Amazing odds and love.

    He was SO lucky to have this woman as his advocate. He may not remember her, but I’ll bet he has fallen in love with her all over again. It’s amazing — they only knew each other for two months before marrying, but it’s apparent she truly loved him. It is no easy task to take someone in that condition and bring them home, no matter how much help you have.

    What a wonderful love story. Unconditional love, such a beautiful thing!

    May God bless this young couples marriage beyond measure. She is so young to demonstrate such fortitude and faith.

    I can identify with her even though I am much older. When my DH and I were married a year and a half he broke his neck and back at work. After surgery he did not remember marrying me. Those were difficult times but we made our way through it.

    Then last year my DH suffered a deadly illness from a tick bite and was on life support for two months. The doctors told me more than once he wasn’t going to make it. I refused to give up until God told me too. That still small voice told me to hang on and hang on I did. My DH recovered.

    Just this past week God saved my life from massive blood clots in my left leg and abdomen. I believe that during these difficult times God is performing miracles and that as Christians we are to stand up for Christianity as never before. Why God chooses some and not others for these miracles I do not know. I feel like we are to reach out to those caught up in today’s evil ways and try to pull them to God. There are still many who need to hear and understand the Gospel, they are all around us.

  8. Something got a little mixed up here, the “Wakes Up During Hymns” part is actually in reference to another coma story:

    “A college student who reportedly went into a coma after being struck by a car last week woke up after her family and friends started singing hymns by her hospital bedside, and her mom is calling it “an amazing miracle.”
