The couple used to go ballroom dancing on the weekends, so Jim dug out his tuxedo – Elinor’s granddaughters did her makeup, and the pair had dinner and chatted.

Photos of Jim’s surprise have gone massively viral on Twitter after they were shared by the couple’s granddaughter, Reid:

Elinor told ABC News:

Being in a hospital bed, you get so bored, so when they came in it made me smile like the younger days when we were dancing.

SO sweet. :’)
