A nurse in Bronson Hospital in Michigan, Nurse Brenda, was watching a TV show with one of her hospice patients, Robert Olson, when he remarked on how much he liked the song “You Light Up My Life” by Debby Boone. Lucky for him, Nurse Brenda had been singing to her patients for 17 years so naturally, she started singing the song to him. Although she didn’t know all the words, she was like I’m going to print out the lyrics and tomorrow I promise I’ll sing this to you! True to her word, nurse Brenda returned the next day with a page of lyrics and sang the song to Robert.
Robert was taken to the hospital after having breathing problems at home, and his family didnt think he was ever going to be able to come home again..that’s why his daughter was so surprised that nurse Brenda was able to get her father talking again..she lifted his spirits SO MUCH that he recovered enough to return home the following week..all thanks to Nurse Brenda who Roberts daughter credits his recovery to!
