A four-year-old boy who suffers a rare genetic disease has formed an adorable bond with the janitor who cleaned his hospital room. Cooper Baltzell has spent a lot of time at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital after he was born with Hirschsprung’s disease, a digestive disorder that affects the large intestine. His time at Children’s Hospital was made bearable by Gregory Watson, the janitor assigned to Baltzell’s floor. The boy became so fond of Watson as the pair bonded over the hospital’s popcorn machine that he began imitating the friendly janitor. Now Baltzell uses a tiny mop on the floors at home and sometimes gets to visit the hospital to see his pal. (Metro)
