Woman Refused to Take Her Husband Off Of Life Support - Then He Woke Up

April 08, 2015 2 min read

Life can be a very scary thing. It can change in a moments notice, without warning and turn your whole world upside down. This is what happened to Danielle Josey Davis. Her husband, Matthew, got into a motorcycle accident in 2011—just seven months after they had gotten married, putting him in to a coma. 9 days after his accident, doctors told Danielle that there was a 90 percent chance Mathew would remain in a permanent vegetative state and told her to "pull the plug" but she refused to lose hope. Danielle wrote on the Matthew Davis Recovery Facebook page: "This was a difficult choice for me....Being his wife, I knew that he did not want to remain a vegetable—and here the doctors were telling me that's exactly what [would] happen. I prayed a lot and [chose] not to take him off of life support. The next day, Matthew opened his eyes. Exciting as this [was], I later learned that eyes open without consciousness is typical of a vegetative state."  Screen Shot 2015-04-07 at 2.39.24 PM A few months after Mathew's accident, Danielle chose to care for him at home.By this point Mathew could follow people with his eyes, but wasn't making any intentional movements. Previous memories were fuzzy and jumbled. Danielle shared with CBS that about a month later,she put Matt's hat in his hand and told him to put it on to which he responded "I'm trying." Mathew has been almost independent since February 2013, walking without supervision and able to drive on a closed course. "He still has a long way to go, and our journey is not even close to the end, but the hardest parts are over." Keep on fighting Danielle and Mathew! You are both an inspiration!
