Reading the news in the morning can be a sobering, often disheartening experience. Today, however, brings an unusually heartwarming story:
From The Telegraph: Seven-year old Charlotte Neve suffered a brain hemorrhage in April (that’s not the heartwarming part; it’s coming). After having two operations, she fell into a coma and doctors told her family that she was not likely to survive, and that they should say their goodbyes. A week into the coma, Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” came on the radio, and Charlotte’s mom Leila turned it up; it was a song they used to sing together.
As Leila started singing to Charlotte, the little girl smiled — it was the first time she had reacted to anything since falling into the coma. Two days later, she was talking again and able to get out of bed. These days, she’s relearning how to do things she could do before the coma, and is even back at school.
The power of music, hunh?
