Last night I had a once in a lifetime experience. The dear man who has been my mentor in the field of music medicine for twenty years now, was in the hospital recovering from an emergency appendectomy, and I was able to deliver him a set of my surgery headphones to use during his recovery!
If it were not for Dr. Arthur Harvey, these headphones would not exist and now, he got to benefit from them! Dr. Harvey reported that the quality of music was “amazing” and as I stood there talking with his son, Dr. Harvey was smiling and singing along with the favorite hymns I had put on just for him!
Needless to say I am thrilled to be able to help the man who is responsible for my being where I am in this wonderful profession and am trusting that he will continue to recover and maybe do so faster and with less pain, thanks to the music he taught me about long ago!
