YORK, Pa. – Exhausted after working an overnight shift, this father’s work still wasn’t done. Instead of going home and getting some well deserved rest in his bed, the dad went to the hospital to be with his sick son.
Andre Palmer’s 20-month-old son was sick and in the hospital. His wife, Amy, was at York Hospital Pediatrics in Pennsylvania by the toddler’s side.
According the KTRK, she was asleep in a chair when he came in the room.
“He could have asked my to get up, but he didn’t because he knew how tired I was,” Amy told KTRK. “He’s a great man.”
Instead, Andre crawled under his son’s crib and curled up for some rest.
Amy snapped a photo and posted it on Facebook, along with this caption:
“This is a picture of a hard working man dedicated to his family!! After working all night third shift, he’s right here with his son who is in the hospital. He’s so tired but he’s here!! Father of the year award goes to Andre Palmer!!! I love you more than words baby.”
The photo quickly got more than 3,000 likes.
The toddler has since been discharged from the hospital and is now back home.
