Several months ago I was persuaded to make "surgical" repairs in order to repair a completely dislocated arm on "Citrus", a favorite bear belonging to one of my youngest patients in the north of the state. When I agreed to undertake the operation, the older sisters rushed inside and collected "Buttercup" & "Violet" to keep "Citrus" company on her trip to "hospital" way down south in the big city. In due course on the "waiting list", as my next visit was imminent, I decided to enter the spirit of the game and the next three photos tell it all!

Soon bear was asleep; their new friends at the Dr's daysurgery clustered around to give Buttercup & Violet courage; but little Lulu couldn't bear to watch


And the doctor prepared to fix Citrus's arm


After the operation the three bears & their new friends thanked the doctor!!
