I was driving home today with the radio on in my car and the song “Satisfaction” from The Rolling Stones was playing. Then I remembered an important true story someone told me a while back that I feel is important to share with you or anyone who has a loved one in a coma.
The only thing I know is that when someone is in a coma they CAN HEAR EVERYTHING, even if they cannot respond. Close family of a guy who was in a coma in the hospital was playing a lot of music that the guy in the coma loved. When he heard the Rolling Stones song Satisfaction he awoke from his coma with a smile on his face!
Make sure you have a loved ones friends or certain family there that can talk to the one they love who is in a coma. And especially play loud music – the all time favorites that the person loves the most.
Now I certainly have no plans of being in a coma, but just in case, make sure both my children are there, my Uncle Len, my brother, and my friends Ceola, Nama, and Karen to talk to me. Then 24/7 until I wake up play LED ZEPPELIN Whole Lotta Love, Stairway to Heaven, and Achilles Last Stand. That would pull me right out of it!
I just thought it was so inspiring that a SONG actually pulled someone out of a coma! So spread this around – you never know how many lives we can save.
