AURORA, Colo. - When a little girl woke up from surgery at Children's Hospital in Colorado last week, she found one of her dolls wearing the exact same bandage on her head.
Madelyn Schiltz had a cochlear implant inserted to help her hear.
When Madelyn arrived at the hospital for surgery, she brought her American Girl doll with her. A nurse bandaged the doll to look just like Madelyn -- with a big bandage over her ear, according to Madelyn's mother, Shannon Schiltz.
"She [the nurse] even braided my daughter's hair to look like her doll," said Schiltz.
A photo of Madelyn and the doll shows the doll wearing a bandage on her head and a hospital gown over her clothes.
Madelyn and doll were discharged two days later.
"I truly want to thank her [the nurse] and all involved for the excellent care my daughter has been shown," Schiltz said.
