Leading up to his 98th birthday, all Alfred Birch wanted was to get 98 likes on a Facebook post.
But his daughter and granddaughter didn't think he'd quite manage it.
So Alfred, from Massachusetts, posted a photo of himself from his hospital bed online, holding a sign asking for likes.
It turns out the ladies seriously underestimated Alfred, as his post gained more than 22,000 likes in a few days.
Alfred was in hospital with congestive heart failure and doctors weren't sure if he was going to make it.
But he's now left hospital with a spring in his step - and more Facebook friends than ever.
