GARDENDALE, Ala. — An Alabama man’s Facebook post about his wife, who is a trauma nurse, went viral on Facebook last week. Now, he’s sharing a funny message with his fans about the “crazy private messages” he has received on Facebook.

On Nov. 7, Bobby Wesson shared a photo of his wife and their son and wrote about how much he loves his overworked wife. The post has been shared 92,000+ times.

On Friday, Wesson shared a video he recorded in October about the numerous women who have sent him interesting private messages.

If you missed the viral Facebook post from last week, here it is:

“This is my wife Rayena [Wesson] taking a nap. In an hour she will wake up, put on her scrubs and get ready for work.

The tools and items she needs to perform her job will be gathered and checked meticulously – her hair and makeup will be done quickly. She will complain that she looks awful. I will disagree, emphatically, and get her a cup of coffee.

She will sit on the couch with her legs crossed under her and try to drink it while happily playing with the toddler that’s crawling all over her.

She will occasionally stare off blankly as we talk; silently steeling herself for the coming shift. She thinks I don’t notice.

She will kiss the baby, she will kiss me and she will leave to go take care of people that are having the worst day of their entire lives. Car wrecks, gunshot wounds, explosions, burns and breaks – professionals, poor, pastors, addicts and prostitutes – mothers, fathers, sons, daughters and families – it doesn’t matter who you are or what happened to you.

She will take care of you.

She will come home 14 hours later and remove shoes that have walked through blood, bile, tears and fire from aching feet and leave them outside.

Sometimes she will not want to talk about it. Sometimes she can’t wait to talk about it.

Sometimes she will laugh until she cries and sometimes she will just cry – but regardless of those sometimes she will be on time for her next shift.

My wife is a trauma nurse. My wife is a hero.”
