Nurses Help Family Reunite Their Dying Grandfather With His Beloved Dog For A Heartfelt Goodbye
Although perhaps somewhat of a cliche, there’s really no arguing the fact that for many, a man’s dog is truly his best friend. That fact has been made even more evident by the great lengths that a few nurses went to so that they could give a dying man one last goodbye to his beloved pup.
Losing His Battle With Cancer
David King had been embroiled in a battle with cancer for years, and sadly, that fight was coming to an end. While in what he imagined would be his deathbed in a Missouri hospital, he knew that he would likely never make it home to say goodbye to his best friend, Lil Fee the Yorkie mix.
Many hospitals have a strict no-pet policy, and the Missouri hospital was no different. His wife, Cindy, knew that she had no choice but to do something about it.
It Took Some Help From The Nurses
With some help from the nurses that had been caring for David, his family came up with a plan to sneak the dog into the hospital for a final goodbye.
Ellie Miguel, the granddaughter, shared a photo on Twitter of the lengths they went to in order to get the dog inside, and she explained how much the pup meant to her grandfather. “My grandpa loved his dog Lil Fee, she would follow him around everywhere,” she shared. “He would bring her everywhere he could.”
A Touching Goodbye
Despite being unresponsive at the time of Lil Fee’s visit, the family said that it was a heartbreaking moment that they would never forget.
“For the first time that day, he moved his arm in attempts to pet his Lil Fee,” Ellie said. “It was a moment I’ll never forget.” Nothing can make a person feel better than their best friend, and in this case, it was a little Yorkie. David’s family will be in our thoughts!
