On Call

21 Jun

Dr. Mom was on call once again. The patient: a dolphin- aka “Flipper”. Reason for visit: lack of polyester fiberfill. Recommendation: minor surgery.  This procedure is a little more invasive than my last. The last patient only needed a band-aid!

First step was sterilization. “Flipper” took a dive into the washer and then a spin in the dryer.

Next, I removed the tattered tag and seam ripped under one fin.

Once open, I added a little polyester fiberfill at a time. After filling the dolphin enough, I stitched the hole back up.

“Flipper” is good as new!
