(KSL News) High 5 has been celebrating love all week. This morning we're meeting a couple who feel like they have a second lease on life.

Tom Hussey was nominated by his wife, Elsie. She says last year at this time he was diagnosed with cirrhosis and has since had a liver transplant. She considers it a miracle and wanted to let him know how much she loves him.

Elsie Hussy, nominated husband: "Tom I think you deserve it because you got a new lease on life last year with your liver transplant. We have a new life together. He was about dead at this point last year. He didn't know who I was most of the time, and didn't know who he was part of the time. He quit work and was getting ready to die. But he got a liver transplant, and it's been a miracle."

Tom Hussey: "It is a great thing to get a new lease on life and have a wife that supports you and family around you. It's a good thing."
