A newly married couple had to test her promise a few days after joining the hound when a honeymoon became a life-changing disease for the groom.
Adam and Bridget Spoerri, from the United States of Wisconsin, are married in July.
They went on a journey after their wedding and both came down with suspected chest cold – but while Mrs Spoerris’s disease went away on her own, her husband did not seem to recover.
They spent almost every day in the hospital when Spoerri slowly recovered from a lame polio-like disease that usually affects children, Fox News reported.

Mrs. Spoerri said that she spent one night in her home with her husband before rushing to the emergency room on August 5th.
“His head became very weak. He could not swallow and then breathing was very busy,” Spoerri told Fox 6 now.
It was two months before Spoerri, 30, was diagnosed with acute weak myelitis (AFM), as his family said they believed he was at risk because of immunosuppressive drugs he took for asthma and Crohn’s disease.

AFM is a rare, severe condition that affects the nervous system and causes sudden outbreaks in the arm or legs and loss of muscle tone and reflexes. It can also cause facial drop, difficulty in moving eyes, hanging eyelids or swallowing difficulty.
The most serious cases can lead to breathing failure, where patients like Spoerri will require a ventilator. Most patients recover, but others may face lasting weakness or other complications.
Spoerri and his wife have communicated via notepad because he can move their hands and wrists to write, according to a GoFundMe page. According to this, doctors have thought of him from the ventilator.

“I thought he killed every day the first two weeks,” Spoerri told, an English-language teacher at the college Journal Sentinel . “I had no hope.”
Spoerri has since been transferred from a hospital and is currently being treated for long-term care, but it is not clear how long a recovery he faces.
“Adam and his wife have shown such strength throughout this disease,” told Taylor Finseth, Spoerris neurologist, Journal Sentinel . “They really wonder. The love that his wife shows to him is incredible.”
