The YouTube video of a morphine-induced Jason Mortensen waking up from his hernia operation to realize how beautiful his wife is has gone viral.

(Warning: This video contains an expletive, viewer discretion is advised.)

The couple has been married for six years, and Mortensen says his wife has been by his side through numerous surgeries.

Mortensen posted on his YouTube page, “In a previous surgery, I suffered a severe complication and we didn’t know if I’d ever function the same again. She is the love of my life.”

He added that he wishes he could remember this moment, but he was “definitely out of it.”
