What do you do for work? This is such a common question, isn’t it? Work takes up so much of this life.
There’s a lot of advice out there recommending that whatever work you do, make it something you love. You want to feel inspired through your work? Help people or create things.
When Miles Weske went out on a late night call the night of Sept. 17, it was as routine as any other. Miles is a flight and ground paramedic and his fiancee, Brooklyn Weber, is a flight nurse.
For these two, late night calls and saving lives is all in a day’s work. But this night would end up being very different.
Miles had taken a 1 a.m. call that night and was out the door. Weber was mid-shift too, at the AIRMED hanger within the Bemidji airport, when a page came in to her at 3 a.m. Her team did not take the call, so she attempted to go back to sleep but was unable.
She had a bad feeling about Miles. At 5 a.m. she got another call.
“My dispatch center called me on the radio. They asked me to call them on the phone. That is when one of the dispatchers notified me that an AirCare ship had went down. I was in complete and utter shock.”
The helicopter Weske was on had crashed at 2 a.m. that morning and while no one was dead, everyone was severely injured.
Weske suffered a lacerated liver, fractures of his C2 and C3 vertebrae, several broken ribs,and a broken sternum, ankle, and femur. His lungs were also collapsed and had blood in them.
Weske’s chances of survival were not good, but he was a fighter. He even died at one point while he was in the hospital. Fortunately for all involved, doctors managed to bring him back, and he’s been improving ever since.
Well, it’s been five months now and not only has Weske survived and recuperated, but the two have been married as well!
Everyone was amazed that he was strong enough to walk down the aisle when they tied the knot on Jan. 28. Brooklyn explains that it was more than a wedding because they were also celebrating his recovery. Her birthday is on Jan. 28 and his is on Jan. 29, and they feel so blessed because neither were sure he’d make it to age 35.
Thankful to have married the love of his life and even more thankful to be alive, Miles is healing and his is definitely a story with a happy ending. Congrats to the couple and prayers to Miles for a continued and full recovery.
