Slade, five-years-old boy from Pennsylvania, had a tonsil removal in a local clinic. The surgery went well and everyone was waiting for him to wake up.
He’s been through a lot this last year,” said his mother, Layla. “This was his second surgery this year and he is exhausted.” she added.
After the surgery, a team of nurses had to check Slade’s vitals before his mother could see him.
Right after he woke up, the only thing he asked was a snuggle. One of his nurses immediately jumped in and did just that. Only a couple of seconds were needed and the boy calmed down.
That moment was captured on camera, and that photo has been shared hundreds of times and went viral on social media.
His mother is so thankful to the nurse and the whole medical team. Truly honest and heartwarming performance by the nurse!
