‘It wasn’t until I woke up that my wife and I both learned it was actually my 11-year-old son. It completely melted my heart!’: Nurse Dad says ‘the little things you are doing are so much bigger than you know’

“I got home from the hospital this morning with my basement couch/bed made and towels laid out and ready for my post COVID hot shower.

It made my heart happy as I thought about the little things my wife is doing during her own isolation at home to make my life easier after a long night.

It wasn’t until I woke up that my wife and I both learned that it was actually my 11-year-old son who prepared our basement for my post-shift coma prior to going to bed last night! It completely melted my heart!

I learned a valuable lesson from my son today, no matter how big or small we are all fighting this together.

Families of healthcare workers, the little things and the big things you are doing while stuck at home are so much bigger than you know.

Stay home, stay healthy, and keep up your part of this fight against this virus.”
