Keanu and I met in German class in 2016, and we became great friends. He eventually decided to ask me out, but when I walked outside he was passed out on my front lawn! My parents and I called for an ambulance, and they took him to the hospital. We were able to get to his phone to call his parents too. While we waited in the hospital lobby, his parents showed up and all of us got to meet for the first time. When we finally got to see Keanu, the doctors said that it seemed like it was his heart that caused him to pass out. Eventually, Keanu was able to see a cardiologist and he is doing much better today! He also asked me out a few days after the hospital incident and we have been together ever since. I was able to see him graduate in 2017 and he was there for mine in 2018. We also just got married last year. I am so thankful that we were able to meet at Cal Lutheran, and even though the hospital incident was scary, I’m thankful that it brought us and our families closer together as well.
