“It was, honestly, a mother’s worst nightmare,” said Miss Gregory of the attack that blew her to the ground, shielding her young son but causing her to endure 15 surgeries and a potential amputation.
Her fiancé, Pete DiMartino, lost his Achilles tendon and suffered multiple broken bones.
The lovebirds were engaged in October after both underwent intense rehabilitation for their injuries.
“Recovery has had its ups and downs,” said Miss Gregory. “I was having a rough day and I called Pete and I just told him, ‘I need you right now,’” she said.
Pete had the ring ready to go but was just waiting for the right moment to drop to one knee.
So, where should the two get married? I say the bride’s hometown ;)
