Injured elf on the shelf gets life-saving surgery (video)

A courageous elf is back on a little girl's shelf after undergoing a life-saving operation.

Jenn Thelen of Florida says her seven-year-old daughter Aubrie was horrified when she discovered that the family's dog had mauled their Christmas elf, Sam. 

Sam was left in pretty bad shape, so Jenn -- who is a hospital nurse -- told Aubrie she would take the elf to work with her and have the ER doctors make him all better, which they did.

The hospital shared a video of the successful surgery on Facebook. Once the procedure was over, Sam was bandaged up, sprinkled with special Christmas magic, and then returned home to Aubrie.
