“From that moment on, I don’t remember anything,” Weeber said.
When she arrived at the hospital, doctors performed tests and soon identified a ruptured brain aneurysm. An aneurysm occurs when a blood vessel balloons in the brain. When it ruptures, the vessel pops, and could cause a life-threatening stroke.
Singer felt moved by Weeber's case because his own wife was 24 weeks pregnant at the time.
Weeber underwent surgery and spent weeks in the hospital for observation and recovery. Amazingly, she suffered no complications after the aneurysm.
According to Spectrum Health, half of the patients who suffer an aneurysm don't survive, and most who do survive never return to full health.
Last month, she and her husband welcomed their 9-pound baby boy.
“After Hudson was first born, he and I would make eye contact when I was holding him and I would just start crying,” Weeber said. “We had both been through so much, and I felt like he knew that.”
When the family reunited with Singer, his eyes welled up with tears.
“I didn’t expect to feel so emotional,” said Singer. “This is fantastic … It makes me feel good.”
Anna and Nate credit her excellent recovery to the doctors who cared for her and the power of prayer. According to Spectrum Health, Nate put out a prayer request on Facebook when his wife first fell ill.
“People all around the world were praying for us,” said Nate.
