A pediatric neurosurgeon in Halifax was recently preparing a child for surgery when the child asked if the doctor would also fix a beloved teddy bear that needed some stitching. Dr. Daniel McNeely is now being praised on social media for his kind heart after he happily obliged his patient’s plea at the IWK Health Centre in Canada. McNeely decided to tweet out a picture of him stitching up the bear, which quickly went viral on Twitter.

The Canadian doctor wrote, “Patient asks if I can also fix teddy bear just before being put off to sleep … how could I say no?” The post was accompanied by two photos, the first showing McNeely ready for surgery with gloves and a mask on, working on a small brown teddy bear. The second photo shows the doctor with a scalp in one hand and a pair of scissors in the other over the teddy bear. The bear’s face was covered by a tiny mask, in which he said was a “neonatal face mask” that help to preserve the teddy bear’s anonymity.
