Delta offered me to check the hand luggage and since I had 8 hours to kill in Amsterdam - I agreed. This was a precedent for TLB to travel in the cargo. Unfortunately the cargo was honey. Not after we arrived in Vegas it wasn't. Tumbago was pulled from the airplane under the influence and disorderly.

A Canadian surgeon has performed a daring experimental procedure without anesthetic - on a teddy bear. Although he had no prior experience with stuffed-bear medicine, Dr Daniel McNeely agreed to operate at the request of the cuddly toy's owner. Jackson McKie, eight, was heading into surgery when he asked the doctor if he could also fix his bear Little Baby. Jackson has a brain condition, and Dr McNeely has been one of his primary neurosurgeons since birth. "How could I say no?" Dr McNeely tweeted along with pictures of the bear operation. The tweet has since been shared almost 13,000 times.

He diagnosed the toy with a tear in the underarm, and gave the bear an "oxygen mask" during the procedure. Little Baby - who is always at Jackson's side - was able to grin and bear it. Both patients are recovering after successful procedures. Jackson suffers from hydrocephalus, an accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid. Dr McNeely, who works at IWK Health Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia, was repairing a shunt. The small tube helps drain the fluid from Jackson's brain and release pressure.

Jackson McKie reunited with his beloved Little Baby bear after the surgery at the IWK Health Centre in Halifax

Jackson McKie, 8, of Summerside asked his pediatric neurosurgeon to repair his ailing bear. A Halifax pediatric neurosurgeon had his skills put to the test when a young patient asked him to take on a double surgery and repair his ripped teddy bear. Jackson McKie, 8, of Summerside, P.E.I., was having a shunt repaired last week at the IWK Health Centre in Halifax. He brought his trusty friend, Little Baby, along for the journey. "It's his best buddy," said his father, Rick McKie. The bear was given to the family when they went to get an ultrasound to find out the sex of their baby.

"When he was born, he had it ever since with him. Through thick or thin." But the inseparable duo were both under the weather. Jackson, who has hydrocephalus, was suffering from bad headaches. Little Baby was diagnosed with a tear of the underarm. As the pair went into the operating room, Jackson made the surprise request. His surgeon, Dr. Daniel McNeely, happily obliged.

"There's always a few stitches that are left over from the case itself and they normally get disposed of," said the physician, who got to work on Little Baby as soon as Jackson was stitched up, making sure to give the bear "oxygen" and monitor his vitals.

McNeely says kids often bring stuffed animals into the operating room for comfort, but the request for the dual operation was a first.Despite his lack of experience with bear cubs, McNeely said he "wasn't too worried" about having the appropriate qualifications. He happily reported both procedures were successful.

When Jackson woke up, he was over the moon, said his father. "He was so proud. He had Little Baby laying up in the hospital bed with him and everything." McKie said he was amazed and thankful that the surgeon went out of his way to grant Jackson's request. "It made us feel better about being there."

McNeely decided to post the photos, the first time the surgeon has ever tweeted. The reaction has been contagious, with people overwhelmed by his act of kindness. "It's not what I was looking for," McNeely said of his newfound fame. "I just thought I might make some people smile somewhere."

The McKie family has printed off photos of the second surgery, so Jackson now has framed copies. His father said Jackson's on the mend but has some emotional moments. As for Little Baby's recovery: "He's coming around. According to Jackson, he's a little moody, too."

Happy 7th Birthday Tumbago

Today is Tumbago's 7th and Juri's 50th birthdays. Friday was the last sunny day in Vienna for the season, so a flash mob birthday event spontaneously happened in AKH Vienna courtyard - friends with birthdays around this date celebrating. Pepa made a cake. Evgeni gave Tumbago Cohiba cigarillos.

The birthday girl and boys are Petya (40), Tumbago (7), Emo (43) and Juri (50), Tumbago and Juri being born the closest to the date.

Juri got new socks, shoes and a walker, so he can continue carrying us around the world.

I wanted to bundle this with an adult diaper, but Juri objected that this is adding to the weight of the backpack and besides since India 2017 he had been shitting his pants and the bears are used to it.

Teddy Land: Moving to Rottenmann, Styria, Austria

We bought us a house in Rottenmann.
A healthy colony of bats is indicative of a well balanced ecosystem in the Alps.
We have been warned not to leave the windows open at night.


Teddy Land: Rottenmann old painting 1679
I found the text under the picture in German and used Google to translate. It said that the villagers got hammered and tried to torch the city on 4th of July 1679, gracefully intervened by the deities. I asked Juri if we are moving intentionally in sanctuary of drunks. Juri said that Google translates LIGHTENING like HAMMERING.

Rottenmann is a town in Styria in Austria, near the Rottenmanner Tauern. Rottenmann was first referred to in an document in 927. It received its town charter in 1279 from King Rudolf von Habsburg.
