On finding out that he would be coming home earlier than expected from deployment, Dr. Joshua Splinter wanted more than anything to find a way to surprise his doctor wife. He interrupted her routine day in the most amazing way, and nearly made his wife Alice faint from unexpected excitement. Do you think he was romantic by pulling off a perfect reunion?
A surprise worth the wait.
Only Military spouses know so well the feeling of waiting patiently for their beloved husband or wife to return home from a deployment. It’s most times a long, stressful, and worry-filled journey of wait… which is probably why a good reunion would mean so much. From greeting their dogs to surprising their kids at school, these videos of military members are more than enough to bring tears to your eyes.
Dr. Splint’s stunt which he pulled off recently on his doctor wife Alice became a trending video online, as his stunt shocked his wife who nearly collapsed for seeing her husband unexpectedly, since he left combat ground quite early.
The Perfect Surprise planning.
Dr. Joshua Splinter is a military doctor who, up until a couple weeks ago, had spent five months deployed in the Port of Africa. His wife Alice, a pediatrician, stayed home, relocated their family, and continued to work to finish her residency. And even though he was halfway across the world, Joshua knew how much Alice had been “holding everything together for him and the family” while he was gone to Africa. As we well know, it’s not exactly easy for one to want to be mummy and daddy at the same time and be a career woman.
Joshua was grateful and very much relieved for all of Alice’s hard work in caring for their life while he was gone, for filling in so well for him in his absence. When he realized he would be coming home a little earlier than planned, he immediately tried to find a way to give Alice the happy surprise she deserved after all, anything for his beautiful wife. After collaborating with a friend, he finally found the perfect way to wow her! And it was worth it after all.
Alice’s Reaction making it worth it after all.
When Alice walked into the ward to check on one of her patients, she instead met her husband Joshua waiting for her. At first, she was so stunned that she wasn’t sure she could stay upright long enough to reach him. “I honestly almost fainted on seeing him,” she shared. “My knees got so weak on seeing him, but I was so happy to see him I just tried to hug him and stand there and take in the moment.”
Luckily, the emotional moment and action was captured on video. It’s clear from both of their reactions that his efforts at an incredible surprise wasn’t in vain! All in all, as overwhelmed as Alice felt, she couldn’t be more grateful for him returning home and surprising her like that. “This was a great surprise,” she said. “I’m happy always to have him home.”
