A neurosurgeon in Canada went viral last week for the way he treated a little boy undergoing surgery.
The 8-year-old was undergoing a procedure and before the doctors put him under, he asked if they could also fix his teddy bear. So, after the little boy's surgery, the neurosurgeon went to work on the bear. He put some stitches on his arm and took a picture of him "undergoing surgery" with an oxygen mask on. He posted the photos on twitter with the caption "Patient asks if I can also fix teddy bear just before being put off to sleep... how could I say no?"
The little boy says it makes getting better easier, with his bear recovering with him.
Last week people all across the capital region and nation celebrated "Coffee with a cop". It's a way for people to get to know the police in their community. Among those participating was Albany's new police Chief, Eric Hawkins who says it’s a unique opportunity for residents to interact with the police department in an informal way.
And there was an incredible and heartwarming response to help 17 cats and kittens abandoned in Schenectady. Donations of food, bedding, money and offers to adopt came pouring in after someone left the animals on the side of the road in a plastic bin. The director of the Animal Protection Foundation in Glenville says it was the most overwhelming response she's seen in her 15 years at the non-profit shelter. Even better news... all 17 will be fine.
