His tonsils were removed recently.Layla waited anxiously as Slade had surgery.
She wanted him to feel protected and loved. She couldn't wait to bring him home to his own bed.
Before letting Layla enter Slade's room after surgery, staff checked his vitals.
Annie Hager, RN, informed Slade it wasn't time for his mom to visit, so he begged for a favour
Layla was so affected when she came inside Slade's hospital room that she took a snapshot. The photograph gained thousands of views after being posted on Facebook.
