I had an important phone call late this morning....Wendy needed major emergency surgery and fast.
She was rushed to me by lunchtime with her little friend.
This is her little friend who stands in when Wendy takes a bath or has much needed minor surgery but today things had got serious.
Wendy had taken a turn for the worse. She was feeling deflated and very unwell indeed.
When we turned her over we could see several minor surgery scars and she had been so well loved her insides were escaping through further wounds. She was originally cream like her little friend so was also feeling very off colour from all the baths she had had over the years. Of course her little owner would need Wendy for bedtime tonight so rapid major emergency surgery was needed.
She was given a general anaesthetic and had her wounds repaired [and a little new stuffing] then using the lovely material that was brought with her she was made a lovely new coat. Her surgery well well and after she was awake she was then able to sit alone and enjoyed a cup of tea and a biscuit.
Yes, without a doubt, I am a little mad but to work here it really helps. I feel very honoured to be trusted with such priceless friends and always do my best to keep the character of the original when working on such treasures. Wendy is really thrilled with her face lift.....now all I hope is that her little owner feels the same :-)
