YORK, Pa. – Despite working a long work shift, one dad wasn’t going to miss spending a minute with his sick son.

The Palmers’ young son AJ, short for Andre Jesse, was being treated at York Hospital Pediatrics in Pennsylvania after suffering “an asthma attack I just couldn’t break,” his mother, Amy Palmer, said.

His father Andre was exhausted but wouldn’t leave his son’s side, wife Amy wrote on Facebook.

“I thought to myself after working all night he didn’t have to come to the hospital,” said Amy. “He could have went home to sleep.”

Palmer said she was asleep in a chair when her husband came in. When she woke up, she spotted him under the crib and took a picture.

Her caption reads:

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.

As for AJ, Palmer says he is doing much better and all three are back home now, sleeping comfortably in their own beds.

      If “god” had blessed this family the little boy would not have asthma in the first place. But luckily, the doctors were able to patch up “god’s” handiwork. Poor little guy, glad he’s okay now. He has a great dad!

        Why do people who don’t believe in God feel a need to be snarky when someone mentions Him? The belief in God does not hurt you in any way. FYI I’d rather be wrong in my beliefs than your’s.

      • Christians support molestation

        Because people who believe in make believe stories tend to push their false beliefs into everyone’s faces. Religion is the downfall of humankind. If it takes a molester priest to teach you to be a decent human than your most likely not that moral.
