When a man who went under the knife for a hernia repair to fix residual tears from a previous surgery woke up from the operation, he was so doped up that he had temporary amnesia. Jason Mortensen was so out of it that he didn’t recognize his own wife. She was sitting at his bedside waiting for him to awaken.
During a video capturing the moment, Mortensen comes to and immediately begins hitting on his wife without realizing he’s already married to her, CBS Local reported. The video has already been viewed more than 700,000 times.
In a post that accompanies the video on YouTube, Mortensen explains a little bit more about the circumstances surrounding the viral sensation.
“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.”
