92-year-old man wants to hold wife’s hand one final time before dying – what happens next will bring you to tears

A heartfelt photo of an elderly Chinese couple who had been married for over seven decades holding hands while in the intensive care unit has gone viral, touching millions of people around the world. According to New China, the snapshot was taken and posted by Wang Yanfang, the head nurse at Yinzhou Hospital’s intensive care unit in Zhejiang Province, eastern China.

Feng Ming, 92, was initially sent to the intensive care unit due to heart failure. Unfortunately, his condition worsened, and more of his organs failed before he had a lung infection.Feng eventually lost his ability to speak and was kept alive by a life support machine. Knowing he was nearing the end of his life, his family decided to discontinue therapy and bring him home. But he had one last wish before leaving the hospital: he wanted to visit his wife, to whom he had been married for 66 years.

Zhang Ping, Feng’s 95-year-old wife, had been hospitalized to the same hospital and was being treated on another level for a fractured femur. Wang, the head nurse, told New China: “The ICU’s visiting hours are from 3:00 to 3:30 pm, but Feng’s condition is too severe to wait until then.” He apparently decided to make a special arrangement so that the old couple could meet for what could have been the final time.

Feng’s wife was moved on a stretcher from the 14th floor to the ICU on the third floor, where he saw her for the last time. Wang told the wonderful anecdote, noting that Feng’s wife took her husband’s hand and talked to him in their local dialect, saying, “Don’t be concerned about me. Rest confident, I can take good care of myself.”

Feng began crying after hearing her comments, and he died some hours later in the comfort of his own home. “We made an exception for the elderly couple to meet so that the touching moment can happen and be preserved, I am grateful that we made a right choice,” Wang stated. This story is both heartbreaking and heartwarming. However, it is consoling to know that Feng and Zhang had been in each other’s life through thick and thin, and were so in love with each other to the end. That is true love.
