Woman Finds Out Some Big News - Visits Her Dad in the Hospital and Receives a Surprising Reaction

The man experienced a few moments of lucidity and got the sweetest news.

Alzheimer’s is one of the hardest diseases to go through, especially for the loved ones of the person affected by the disease. 

While the sick person seems to be in peak physical condition, their mind is deteriorating, along with their memories. 

So, the person who once looked at you as if you were their whole world may begin to look at you as if you were a stranger. 

One young woman experienced this with her father, who started suffering from the devastating disease earlier than most. She chronicled her experiences with her once-devoted dad on TikTok.

Olivia Salza is a TikToker whose father is battling Alzheimer’s disease. Before his diagnosis, Olivia was a single mother who loved watching her daughter and her father bond. 

Just as he had been when she was a little girl, her father was the most loving, adventurous, and fun figure in her young daughter’s life. She was eternally grateful for his presence, and was thrilled when he walked her down the aisle after she finally met Nick, the man who would become her husband.

Unfortunately, he was soon diagnosed with the disease and deteriorated quickly. To make matters worse for Olivia and her family, she and her new husband were struggling with infertility. They tried to conceive for more than three years, but had no luck. 

Finally, Nick and Olivia got what they had been hoping for for so long -- Olivia was expecting! She was over the moon but was worried she would not be able to tell the one person who mattered the most to her: her father.

She decided she would pray for him to be having a lucid day, and went to the hospital to give him the big news. She captured the exchange on video.

The Bittersweet Moment Between One Dad and His Daughter

Olivia walked into the hospital room and asked a few preliminary questions to check if her father was lucid that day. Amazingly, he was, and he was in good spirits. He joked around with Olivia and Nick, and was excited when she told him she had news.

She revealed that she was finally pregnant and that he would be a grandpa again. Her father immediately broke down into tears and gave Nick a meaningful look, congratulating him.  

He excitedly told him that he would get to experience “the cradle of that person,” the most wonderful feeling in the world. Olivia burst into tears saying “that’s what you’ve done for me my whole life.”

While this moment between father and daughter is in some ways devastating, it is also beautiful.

Alzheimer’s disease did not steal the moment from the family, they were still able to bask in the happy news together. While he is still deteriorating, grandpa got the meet his new grandson nine months later, and he was overcome with happiness then too.
