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

posted by Madison - 

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. 

Magical elf on the Shelf Surgery

Jenn Thelen woke up to the sound of her 7-year-old daughter, Aubrie, screaming. Their German Shephard, Zoey, had attacked the family’s Elf on the Shelf, Sam. Jenn is the nurse manager for the emergency department at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children. She told her daughter not to worry because we have the best medical team and they had “special doctors” that could fix her elf’s injuries.
