Having been married for 56 years, this couple rarely spent a day apart. Due to her undergoing chemotherapy and an unexpected illness for him, the couple recently were separated for five days. But the emotional reunion was recorded for all to see! This is what the grandchild of the married couple told Storyful about the touching moment: “A week before Christmas my grandma was rushed to the hospital with severe stomach pains. We then found out she has stage 3 ovarian cancer. The doctors wanted to wait till after Christmas to start chemo, but they had to start it before due to severe abdominal pain. My grandpa was in the hospital 24/7 and was not getting much sleep. He then acquired a cold and had to leave the hospital and could not see my grandma for five days in order to not spread his cold. This video was then taken when they were finally reunited. Five days does not seem like a very long time apart but my grandparents have been married for 56 years and hate to be separate especially at a time like this.” Credit: masonzion_ via Storyful
