taying in the hospital for more than a few days can make a person yearn for their regular lives more than they realized.

When little Madison Austin, 3, was cooped up in the hospital during an extended stay recently, she was craving a little excitement.

Admitted since February, she’s been treated for a series of infections, the flu and various complications from a brain and muscle condition called Neuronal migration disorder.

Although she was more than ready to return home, she couldn’t leave just yet.

So the nursing staff at St. John’s Hospital in Springfield, Illinois, decided to make her hospital visit extra special.

After learning from her mom Krista that Madison was obsessed with the “Hokey Pokey,” they gave her a wonderful surprise that kept her grinning from ear-to-ear the whole time.

The group of nurses came by her room with a recording of the song and asked her to join them in a fun little “Hokey Pokey” dance party.

Madison was overjoyed and clearly had the time of her life.

What a wonderful way for these sweet nurses to lift their patient’s spirits. She’ll always remember this special moment.
