A UK couple were recently reported to have lost a diamond engagement ring, which was highly symbolic of the odds against them getting married.
The loved up couple, Neil Baker and girlfriend Janet rushed through a wedding ceremony at Neil’s hospital bedside after he was given only hours left to live. Doctors had delivered the news to Neil after his heart condition had increasingly got worse.
When the medical conclusion was announced, Janet Baker proposed to her boyfriend and the two of them were married by a vicar who was called in. Happily, Neil went on to defy medical conclusions and went on to recover and was finally released from hospital, although he will have to undergo long term medication.
Unfortunately, the couple ended up back in hospital again when Janet was admitted following an ectopic pregnancy and during the operation she removed her diamond engagement ring, which disappeared and has not been seen again. The couple lost the baby and Janet lost her diamond ring.
Mother of Neil said to the publication Lancashire Life: “They are both inconsolable about losing the baby, losing the diamond engagement ring has just compounded their misery.”
The couple are currently saving for a new diamond engagement ring to replace the old one and have realised that the most important thing is their strong love for one another in the face of adversity.
