Since his wife suffered a seizure last week, Ryan Sutter has been in a confused and contemplative state.
Last week, inaugural Bachelorette Trista Sutter, who met her husband, Ryan, on season 1 of The Bachelorette, suffered a seizure while on vacation in Croatia with her family and was hospitalised. On Monday, Ryan took to Instagram to address the life-threatening incident, when he witnessed his wife “seize violently” on a bus.
“I’ve had this picture to post for a few days. I just haven’t been sure what to say? Like my mind, the photo has sat as a ‘draft.’ In limbo,” Ryan began his post, which accompanied a photo of Trista holding a camera on board a boat.
“A bit confused. It was taken one day after my wife, unexpectedly and without a definitive cause, seized violently in front of her family on a shuttle bus full of strangers,” he continued.
“In almost 17 years as a firefighter, my experience has trained me to address the immediate emergency,” Ryan wrote. “However, little in my 42 years of life prepared me for the confusion and contemplation that remains after the tide of immediacy has settled.”
Although Trista’s medical emergency was unexpected to both Ryan and his family members, he has been encouraged by the positive messages and comments from friends, family and members of Bachelor nation who have extended their support.
“What has helped is the outpouring of kindness received from our friends, family and even those that we’ve never personally met. Without a doubt, you have been instrumental in the healing process and a humbling source of strength for @tristasutter and I,” he wrote.
Ryan concluded: “So, with that message, I post this simple picture . It’s my wife – at her best- capturing life as she always has, though now through a more meaningful lens…”
