After his mother’s diagnosis, a boy stole his father’s credit card to buy him medicine. But the pharmacist called the police and the boy desperately told the cops that his mother was dying. Still, they escorted him to their police car, but something unexpected happened.

“Please please!” Louis begged, pushing the credit card desperately into the pharmacist’s hands. “My mother needs it!”

However, the old man in the white coat was stunned and didn’t know what to do. At one point, he walked away from the counter and dialed a number while ignoring calls for help from Louis. Eventually, the pharmacist came back and raised his hands, motioning for the seven-year-old boy to calm down.

“Kid, help is on the way. Calm down,” the older man said, and Louis started bawling in the middle of the medicine cabinet, catching the others’ attention.

“Am I in trouble?” the boy wondered. Her tears had finally dried up.

“You don’t understand. She needs to get better! She has…hmm…lots of serum,” the boy moaned, still pleading. He had only heard part of the doctors’ conversation with his mother. He didn’t know the name correctly. But her mother, Miriam, has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and is expected to take multiple medications for the rest of her life.

Louis didn’t understand what was happening but thought his mother was going to die imminently. When his absent father, Kyle, showed up to talk to his mother, he had an idea.

Kyle had placed his jacket on a hospital chair and Louis had stolen his credit card, thinking he would immediately buy his mother’s medicine. He ran to the pharmacy near the Colorado hospital and asked for medicine to treat his mother’s condition.

But no one was listening to him, and when his tears dried up, he heard the police car sirens. Suddenly, two officers entered the store and spoke to the older man in the white coat. He pointed at Louis with an accusing look, and the boy knew he was in trouble.

One of the officers approached him and knelt down at eye level. “Kid, what’s going on? he asked softly. And Louis’ eyes watered again, but he tried to stay calm and explain the situation. In addition to talking about his mother’s diagnosis, he told them about their lives.

“My mother needs medicine! She works too much. All day, every day, so I can stay in a private school because she says I’m smart. She’s all alone with me. She needs help! My dad…he left us, and I didn’t see him until he came to the hospital,” Louis sobbed between sentences but tried to wipe away his tears and continue. doesn’t help. He has a new wife. But he was there, and I… grabbed his card. I can buy medicine with that, right?

Louis talked for a few more minutes about his mother working 12-hour shifts and how his father didn’t send money. The officer listened intently until Louis was finished.

“Kid, come with us,” Officer Carlson said, standing up and placing his hand on the boy’s shoulder to guide him out of the store.

“Am I in trouble?” the boy wondered. Her tears had finally dried up.

“Well, you got caught with a stolen credit card, kid. And you admitted your crimes. That normally gets you arrested,” Officer Carlson joked, but Louis didn’t sound humorous. He swallowed hard and walked with his eyes down, worrying about causing more trouble for his sick mother.

He was escorted to the police car and he had no idea what they would tell his parents. But to his surprise, they approached the hospital instead of a police station. Officer Carlson told him to show them his mother’s room, and Louis agreed.

“Louis, where have you been? Miriam asked breathlessly when the boy entered the room with a cop. Louis saw his father rise from his chair next to the hospital bed and frown at the cop.

“Sir, can I talk to you for a minute? Officer Carlson told Kyle, and the grown men walked out into the hallway.

Louis ran to his mother and cried into her belly as she calmed him down. “It’s okay. It’s okay. Mom is fine. Everything is fine,” she hummed, though she was troubled by her child’s tears.

When the men returned, Kyle looked whiter and more ashamed. But he approached the bed and looked his son straight in the eye. “I’m so sorry, son. I know I’ve been away, but that’s changing now. I’m going to help you both. It’s my duty,” his father swore, and Louis could see the tears of the adult. man’s eyes.

“Really?” Louis asked, wiping away more tears.

“Really,” Kyle promised again and hugged his child.

They later explained to Louis that his mother was not dying. She was suffering from an illness that needed to be treated with medication, and Kyle had appeared because Miriam’s sister had told him about it. He was already ashamed of abandoning his son, but Officer Carlson gave him the rebuke he needed to get over it and start taking responsibility. He and Miriam would never get back together, but he would pay alimony and alimony.

Once Miriam learned to manage her illness, she returned to work. With the new monetary aid, she didn’t need to exercise as much. Louis also visited his dad over the weekend and they reconnected, something Louis didn’t expect.

But the biggest surprise was Officer Carlson, who visited them several times while Miriam was still in hospital and even more often when she was discharged. At first he pretended he was watching them, but the truth came out pretty quickly. He and Louis’ mother dated for a few years and got married when Louis was 12.

Louis never had to worry about his mother being alone or helpless again.
