Joshua Wade needed an endoscopy last Friday. His favorite stuffed animal, “wolf,” meanwhile, needed stitches for a hole in his right leg.
The 9-year-old asked his doctor at the Children’s Hospital Colorado, Christine Waasorp Hurtado, if his stuffed friend could get surgery too.
“His parents said, ‘No, no, no, they don’t do wolf surgeries here,'” Hurtado told The Huffington Post. “They said they’d get him fixed up at home.”
But Hurtado and Joshua’s anesthesiologist, Tom Strandness, decided to surprise little Joshua.
