CLARK CO., Ky. (WKYT) - Have tissues ready for this story.

James Nisbet is in isolation at his Clark County home after being diagnosed with COVID-19.

He just celebrated his 50th birthday and his family made sure he didn't have to alone.

His son Pearce and daughter E.A. Nisbet arrived with a cake and food to celebrate their father's big day through his screen door.

“It was a great surprise to see [them] come up and ring my doorbell. Being in isolation it really makes you reflect on those that are really important to you and what matter most in life and y’all showed up and brightened my day. It was unbelievable.”

James is now continuing his recovery in isolation at his home where family is dropping groceries off at his doorstep when he needs to restock.

From here his family hopes to have a formal birthday party when their father is fully recovered.

We wish you a happy birthday James and a speedy recovery.
