surgery day

Thank goodness it’s not for anyone we know, not even a real person actually.

Siena came home the other day with her friend’s doll, because he had both legs broken in his knee sockets.  I’ve never  seen these dolls, but her friend has them.  She came home and said “I have to do some surgery.” 

She came out of the art studio and said “OK, I’m done.”  And this is what she did.

First of all, she made him a gown.  He was naked before that.

She hot glue gun his knee sockets in place, and put splints and crutches, for the mean time.

She sent him home with extra splints, tape, and directions to lay low for a while.  Keep the splints for a week.  Walk with crutches for 3 weeks.  Change gauze if bleeding.

Not sure how or where she comes up with these ideas, but her creativity and the way she can make 3D things, amazes me.  Every.  Single.  Time.  She’s always been like this, since she was little.  Making boxes of any shape out of paper or card stock for something special, with no dimensions, no patterns, just out of her head.  Sculptures, houses.  Crutches with pink soft parts, splints? I love all of her creativity.

And this time?  Let’s see how quickly he heels.  I’m sure he’ll be ready to play soon.
