In fact, they argued over the decision for a year before she realised something had to give. "I finally came to a place of, 'This is marriage, you have to compromise,'" she said.

Amanda never expected to lose her husband, and when she dropped him off at the hospital she was convinced he would only be there a couple of hours. 

"I don't even know if he said bye to Elvis or if we said, 'I love you.' I told him I'd stay nearby and to call me when he's done," she said in an Instagram video. 

"That was the last day I saw Nick as Nick. My heart breaks today. I wish I could go back in time, run to him as he was walking away, grab him, kiss him and hold him in my arms. On April 1, he went on the ventilator and I never spoke to him again."
