Over half a century of marriage and a hospital stay is no reason to let an anniversary go by without celebration. And so this man came up with a sweet surprise for his wife while she was in the hospital for their 57th anniversary.

On their 57th anniversary, James “Jim” Russell showed up to his wife Elinor’s hospital room wearing a tuxedo and carrying flowers and chocolate.

For the past month, Elinor has been in the hospital. Their family wanted to come up with an idea on how to make their anniversary special.

“My kids decided it would be great to do something special for my bride, so I went along with it,” Jim said.

To make it special, Jim showed up to Elinor’s hospital room wearing a tuxedo, one he wore ballroom dancing on weekends, Bo said. In addition to the tuxedo, he walked in carrying flowers and chocolate for his wife.

Elinor’s two granddaughters did her make up.

The two dined together in Elinor’s hospital room and watched their two favorite shows, “Jeopardy” and “Wheel of Fortune” and they “had a wonderful time sitting here and talking,” said Elinor.

Elinor said she loved the celebration because “being in a hospital bed, you get bored so when they came in, it made me smile like the younger days when we were dancing.”

This is how you make a marriage last. No matter how many years have passed, couples like this one know to keep working at it and keep putting in the effort to make their spouse feel special and loved.
