HESPERIA – A Hesperia man is heartbroken after the loss of his and his wife’s wedding rings while she was in the hospital Intensive Care Unit (ICU). David and Michelle Amaro met seven years ago at their place of employment. David said that before meeting Michelle that he would never have considered dating a coworker but there was just something special about her.
The couple was married on July 28, 2012, and have been happily married since. Recently, the couple moved to Hesperia with some of Michelle’s family. On March 17, 2016, Michelle was rushed to Desert Valley Hospital with complications relating to a respiratory infection. “The first night the doctor said that he did not think that she going to make it through the night,” said David. “She was placed on a vent, had seven different IV medications and there were several nights I thought the I would lose her.”
Almost 2 months later Michelle came out of the coma and went into recovery until May 3rd. She was then moved to a rehabilitation center on June 1st and is expected to return home on Friday, June 17th. “She is learning to walk again and has limited use of her arms due to being in a coma for almost 2 months,” David said.
During her hospital stay, David just wanted to have a piece of his wife close too him as she fought for her life. “I took her rings and wore them on a necklace with mine to keep them all together; to keep us together.” David was very upset when the rings went missing, he worried that he lost the one thing that he had to remember his wife by if she passed away during her hospital stay.
David told a 24/7 Headline News reporter that he is thrilled that after nearly three months Michelle will be returning home. He said that he feels really bad that he lost the rings and that he is not in the financial position to replace them. Since moving to Hesperia he has been looking for work but has had a difficult time. He said that is soon as he finds a job he will be saving to replace the couple’s cherished rings.
“The engagement ring has inscription “good morning beautiful”, that was our wedding song,” said David. “I sang that song to her every morning while she was in the ICU in the coma.” David is hoping someone may have found their rings and could find it in their hearts to return the rings to them. He asks that anyone who may have found the rings contact him by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. “I am just so happy that she is alive and coming home,” said David.
Michelle has a long road ahead to recover fully. David would love to give his beloved wife back what he lost while only trying to keep a part of her close to his heart.
