    Congratulations on getting out of the hospital. It would be a great thing for you to go back and bless the patients with your playing, you are very talented. Eventually I'd like to be good enough to make folks forget about their pain and smile. I'll bet you could write a great song about your experience.
    God Bless you,

    hi ukecan'tdothat

    Thanks for the inspirational story of what's happenned in your life. And like others, I pray too for your full recovery and for your future witness to the healing power of music in the hospitals.

    I work as a carer in a nursing home and always have a uke close by to play to the residents there. It's amazing what impact music, and especially the ukulele can have. For example, there is one lady there who is almost catatonic, but as soon as I play either "Amazing Grace" or "When the Saints Go Marching In" her lips start mouthing the words to those songs...her daughter has told me they were favorites from her childhood as she was raised by Christian parents.

    I also run a little residents choir in the home; we meet once a month and I know how much we all look forward to it. It is one of the most satisfying aspects of the work, which can be challenging and confronting at times.

    Wishing you and your family many blessings brother
