This Doctor gets an A+ in bedside manner!!
A neurosurgeon in Canada is capturing hearts around the world after photos of him doing “surgery” on his young patient’s teddy bear wereshared on Twitter. Dr. Daniel McNeely has been treating eight-year-old Jackson McKie since he was born, so when the little boy asked his doc to fix “Little Baby” before being put to sleep for his own operation, he couldn’t refuse.
“Patient asks if I can also fix teddy bear … how could I say no?” McNeely posted along with a photo of Little Baby wearing his own tiny “oxygen mask.” The doctor says he diagnosed the bear with a tear in the underarm and after a few stitches, he’s recovering, alongside Jackson.
“He was so proud. He had Little Baby laying up in the hospital bed with him and everything,” McKie’s father, Richard, explains. “It just made us feel better about being there.”

Going the extra mile!!
A California sheriff’s deputy is being recognized for literally going the extra mile to help someone in need. Lancaster Sheriff’s Deputies Chapman and Montanez got a call about a wheelchair being in the middle of the road, but when they arrived to check it out, they found out there was an elderly woman sitting in it because it ran out of power and she was stuck there.
The deputies offered to drive her home, but her wheelchair was too heavy to get into their patrol car and she didn’t want to leave her only mode of transportation behind. So they did the only thing they could do: Deputy Montanez pushed the woman in her wheelchair all the way back to her home, which was about a mile away.
His partner, Deputy Chapman drove the patrol car behind him and in a video shared to Facebook by the Lancaster Sheriff’s Department, he can be heard gently teasing Deputy Montanez as he hoofs it in his full uniform and boots. “You can pick it up, you’re only going about one mile an hour,” Chapman is heard joking.
