This man begs his son to take him home at least for Easter

«Please, son, take me home for Holy Easter; I’ll sit in the corner and be with you for a few days; I won’t cause any trouble; I’ll be treated better in my house; I can’t take it any longer».

«Daddy, you’re acting like a child; you’re cared for here, fed and medicated, and you keep saying the same thing: ‘I want to go home, I want to go home.’

«I haven’t been home in a year; I’ll be happier at home».

«The holidays are only a few days away, I will definitely take you,» the son said.

«Long live my son, I am proud of you, not all children are like that. We’ll go to your mother’s grave when I get home; did you bring flowers to her grave? She loved flowers.»

The son gave his father a brief glance before turning away. He then said his goodbyes and left. From then on, the father kept counting the hours and telling the other patients that he would be home soon.

Back at home, the son sat on the sofa, his face solemn. He was afraid to tell his wife. He turned to face his wife and said.

«I will bring father home for the holidays,» he said pleadingly to his wife.

The wife made a nervous motion and spoke sharply.

«You might have forgotten that your father is infected with tuberculosis and could infect us. Furthermore, we will have a large number of visitors during this holiday.»

«However, the doctor stated that he is no longer a danger to people.»

«Do you trust the doctors? Nothing makes sense to them.»

And their conversation came to an end.

Everyone went to church on Easter morning, then returned home, where there were many guests, who gathered around a sumptuous table, eating, drinking their parents’ toasts, and teaching their children to be good people.

They cleaned the table, tidied up the flat, and went to bed exhausted after the guests left. But the son couldn’t sleep, and even though he was exhausted, something bothered him.

He decided to pay a visit to his father in the morning. The hospital was unusually quiet, with few people walking through the corridors.

According to the nurse, many patients had gone home to celebrate Easter with their families. The son lowered his head and began walking up the stairs to the eighth floor, where his father’s hospital room was located.

He went to the door, thinking about how he would apologize, when he noticed that his father’s bed was empty. He quickly exited the vehicle and went to the doctor’s office. He saw the doctor at the door, who spoke softly.

«We did everything we could, but we were unable to save him. He passed away. And the last thing he said was that he was dissatisfied with his life, with his prospects.
