"I had a hernia repair to fix residual tears from a previous surgery. I wish I could remember this but I was definitely out of it.  This was my fifth surgery within our six years of marriage and she's been by my side through all of it. 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."

Jason Mortenson

A groggy man coming out of general anesthesia after a surgical procedure was filmed by his wife, and the resulting video went viral on YouTube, getting hundreds of thousands of views in just a few hours.

Jason Mortenson was recovering from a hernia operation, and woke up with no idea that the woman in the room with him was his wife. Temporary amnesia is a common side effects with many drugs used for general anesthesia in surgeries.

He marvels at how beautiful she is, and can't hide his astonishment when she informs him that she is his wife of several years. He later updated his video to add a little more information about their situation.
