Montgomery, Ala. (WSFA) -- It's a level of progress no one fully expected.
"It's something that, even a couple of months ago, we just couldn't have imagined being able to happen," said Jason Wolf, son of First Baptist Church pastor Jay Wolf.
Jason and his wife Katherine made a very long trek from California for a family wedding in Montgomery Saturday, just eight months after she suffered a massive brain hemorrhage.
"We've been through an experience we never could have imagined going through at 26 and with a 1 year old baby," Wolf said.
It started back in April. A pre-existing condition in Katherine's brain caused a rupture. Doctors performed complicated surgery for 13 hours.
After that, came a long road to recovery, but Katherine proved she was more than up to the challenge.
"It's a long journey. It's like a mountain climb, and she is on this marathon, just clawing her way out of this treacherous ditch," said Pastor Jay Wolf, Katherine's father-in-law.
Through extensive care and therapy, she's able to stand, talk, and hold her child.
Family members say it's a true miracle Katherine's even alive.
"The Lord works all things for his good, so we're seeing that every day and it's a daily process of trusting Him," Jason Wolf said.
