When Justin Bieber spoke his wedding vows to his wife Hailey Bieber, he truly meant it — especially the "in sickness and in health" part. Last week, the model suffered a small blood clot in her brain during which she displayed stroke-like symptoms. A source told People that Justin was really shaken up by the ordeal and "is probably more traumatized than even she is."

"When it happened, there was a lot of panic. Justin was crying, because you don't expect your young wife to have symptoms that resemble a stroke," the insider shared. "Justin texted everyone he knew and asked everyone to pray for her, and he never left her side."

The source continued, "He was saying that he can't lose her, that whatever it takes, he wanted the best medical treatment available. He would've done anything to help her. It was a moment for them both to be reminded about mortality, and focusing on what really matters."

According to the publication's source, the scary moment on Thursday has put a lot into perspective for Justin. "He realizes, and is telling people around him, how much Hailey is his rock, and how she saved him from a dark time … and that he needs to appreciate her every day," they said. "He's going to keep an eye on her and help her however he can. And he has everyone around him praying for her continued good health. It shook him up."

Luckily, Hailey is doing well and is back home recovering. According to People, she took to Instagram on Saturday to give her followers an update, writing, "They found I had suffered a very small blood clot to my brain, which caused a small lack of oxygen, but my body had passed it on its own and I recovered completely within a few hours."

She continued, "Although this was definitely one of the scariest moments I've ever been through, I'm home now and doing well, and I'm so grateful and thankful to all the amazing doctors and nurses who took care of me!"
