My husband can attest that mind; spirit and emotions are essential for recovery. I recall my spouse and family rallying around me with reaffirming words, praying, singing, reading scripture versus and even when I was in the ICU and/or unconscious for other reasons I could still hear. The wonderful thing is my husband knew this, and he felt that it was critical to remain positive. I thank him for this.
I’m speaking to anyone visiting a loved one who is maybe in ICU or not coherent for whatever reason. Please remember your voices and words can still be heard. Stay positive and be a part of the healing.
