Jun 19, 2012,LONDON - A seven year old girl suffering from a brain hemorrhage woke up from a week-long coma after her mother sang her Adele songs.
Charlotte Neve had suffered the hemorrhage - which are rare in children so young - in her sleep, almost killing her.
After two operations to stop the bleeding on her brain, she was left in a coma and doctors told her mother Leila Neve to prepare for the worst.
But, when Ms Neve, 31, got in the hospital bed to give Charlotte her final cuddle, Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" came on the radio - a song the pair used to sing together.
Ms Neve started singing it to her daughter - and Charlotte began to smile - astounding doctors.
Within two days, Charlotte had started speaking, could focus on colours and managed to get up from her bed.
Two months on, she is now learning to walk and talk and has regained partial sight. She has now gone back to school and dance classes, reported the Daily Telegraph.
Ms Neve, from Trawden, Lancs, said: "It's a complete miracle. Doctors told me to say goodbye and I thought I was going to lose my little girl. I climbed into her hospital bed to give her a cuddle - she was wired up to machines and unresponsive - and Adele came on the radio.
"I started singing it to her because she loves her and we used to sing that song together.
"Charlotte started smiling and I couldn't believe it. It was the first time she had reacted to anything since the hemorrhage. The nurses were astounded and told me to keep singing, and she smiled again.
"The nurses said it was like I 'unlocked her' and from that day she started getting better and better."
Charlotte suffered the hemorrhage on April 13 following a normal night watching DVDs with her mother and sister Megan, aged 11.
She has been left with partial blindness and memory loss - but has now been allowed to return home full-time.
Ms Neve said: "Charlotte has been brilliant. She is so determined and brave. The doctors have stopped telling us what she should be able to do - because she has amazed them so much.
"From the scans, she shouldn't even be able to walk again - never mind talk, ride her bike and run around like she has been doing. She went back to school about two weeks ago for one hour a day and still has her occupation therapy and speech therapy, which is helping.
"She's gone back to dance class now where she does street, ballet and tap which she loves, although it really tires her out now.
"Her older sister Megan has really helped Charlotte because when she was in hospital Charlotte had to cut her hair off because of all the wires - so Megan cut off hers too in support."
Retired pediatrician, Dr Helen Turner from Colne, said: ''Brain hemorrhages in someone as young as this are extremely rare. 'Usually they occur in people in their 30s or older. They are normally caused by weak blood vessels that swells and cause an aneurysm which ruptures.
''It will probably take a long time until doctors will know if the damage is permanent." AGENCIES
