Touching photo of a father sleeping under sick son’s hospital bed goes viral (Photo)


After working a long shift, a Pennsylvania father proved he wasn’t too tired for his most important job – caring for his sick son.

According to his wife, Amy Palmer who shared this pic with PEOPLE magazine:

“He works from 11 at night to 7 in the morning, and I expected him to go straight home. He was exhausted, but he’s such a good dad – so he came straight over to see his son.”

Amy was asleep in the only chair in the small room on Tuesday with her 20-month-old son AJ – who
was admitted to the hospital after a bad asthma attack– when her husband Andre walked in.

“He didn’t want to wake me up,” says Amy, 33. “At about 8 in the morning, I saw him under the crib and I just had to take a picture of it.”

Amy posted the touching photo on Facebook, which has been liked over 3,700 times.

“This is a picture of a hard working man dedicated to his family!” she wrote about her husband, who works for a cardboard company.
