(WJBK) -

Nothing like waking up from anesthesia to fall in love all over again.

That's exactly what happened to Jason Mortensen, who woke up from a recent hernia surgery to find an attractive blonde at his bedside. What he didn't realize in his post-surgery brain fog was that the blonde was actually his wife.

"Did the doctor send you?" asks Mortensen, who saw his wife filming. "Man you are eye candy! Woah. You're the prettiest woman I've ever seen. Are you a model? Who are you?"

"My name's Candice, I'm your wife," replies his bride of six years.

A stunned and extremely happy Jason replies with "Oh my God, I hit the jackpot!"

The video was posted on YouTube on Aug. 30 and has since been nearly 700,00 times.

Mortensen says his wife has been by his side during a string of recent surgeries and she's the love of his life.
