Dr. Mike Patterson

A C.R.A.Z.Y. Approach to Marriage with Ernie Cason

Episode 4

In this episode, Dr. Mike reconnects with a former team member, Ernie Cason, to discover powerful lessons about creating a healthy marriage even in the face of the most extreme challenges. After meeting on a blind date and quickly becoming engaged, Ernie's heart was pierced...not by Cupid's arrow, but by a serrated steak knife wielded by his fiance, Ronna's, enraged ex-boyfriend after he attacked her. Ernie miraculously survived two open-heart surgeries (one to save him and one to repair the hole on the backside of his heart when they eventually recognized that the knife went all the way through).

After overcoming the distrust, finger-pointing, family boycotting of the marriage ceremony, and Ronna asking for a divorce on their 4-year wedding anniversary, their relationship endured, thanks to God, a lot of prayer, and a ton of personal growth.
