A Florida man’s first demand after waking from a 47-day coma earlier this month was… Taco Bell.

“I want Taco Bell,” Jake Booth told his family and doctors gathered at his bedside, USA Today reports.

Booth, a 35-year-old Army veteran, had been hospitalized for pneumonia in February when he had a heart attack and slipped into a coma. The request would take 22 days to fill as Booth could not eat solid food immediately. Last week, his Taco Bell desire was finally quenched with eight-and-a-half crunchy tacos from Taco Bell.

The company even provided some swag and a hand-written note.
