Truly one of the most special videos you will ever see…
Four months after suffering a catastrophic brain injury from a car accident, a Navy SEAL has stood up again with the help of his doting wife — and a video of him planting kisses on her has warmed the hearts of millions.
Earlier this year, 36-year-old SEAL Jonathan Grant, who was in the US serving as a combat medic instructor, was in an accident that left him in a coma, fighting for his life. His wife, 32-year-old Laura Browning Grant, has stuck by him, helping the doctors and physical trainers nurse him back to help.
Laura treasures the little victories of his recovery, and last week was rewarded when she helped her husband stand up from his wheelchair, prompting him to shower her with tentative kisses.
In the video, Laura is seen in sweats, a T-shirt, and a ponytail as she helps lift Jon out of his wheelchair.
The SEAL grabs onto two metal bars on either side of him, and a physical trainer stands nearby to help and guide them.
‘That’s the best you’ve stood up yet,’ the trainer tells him — but Jon is too busy celebrating the victory. He leans in to kiss his wife on the lips, before moving in father to kiss her more on her neck.
‘We hadn’t been able to stand and hold each other since before the accident, but as soon as we got him up, he started kissing my neck,’ Laura told Cosmopolitan.com. ‘It gave me the chills — him kissing me back, you don’t realize how much that means until it’s almost taken away from you.’
Laura has uploaded other clips of her and Jon kissing, all with Jon in his wheelchair or bed and Laura leaning into him. This clip, though, was different, since Jon was initiating many of the kisses.
