Molly Marie and Miss Hickory have arrived. Florence Nightingale Hitty greeted them at the door as MDH is a very caring place and also has comfort candy for the patients(previously made by Marcia for summertime beach swap).Getting checked in at My Dolly Hospital. Medical conference is currently in session. Will post details later... no one to worry!
Molly's x-ray & new adventures...
Such an afternoon...
I had to change into hospital garb, the nurses said as we arrived in my room.
Must say, the gown was kinda funky and I had to have Nurse Hitty Flo tie it in
back for me. I'm hoping no one saw me from behind... oh, the humanities!
Hitty Flo took me down a long long hallway to the Radiology Department. I've
never had an x-ray before! The Technicians were so sweet and giggled so hard
when I told them of the adventures of my journey. I was told to hop up on the
table, but I must say, I almost hopped right back down.... that table was
The X-ray doctor said the tests wouldn't hurt at all and to try very hard not to
wiggle to think of something pleasant while the great big camera over my head
took a picture of my nose... of course, being it's Christmas Season and all, my
first thoughts were of candy. The doctor said I must have been thinking awfully
hard, as little visions of sugarplums showed up in the X-ray!
They said that had
only happened once before when my Mama Carver, D'Marie, had an X-ray taken years
ago for a Christmas poster for the Nutrition Department.
Nurse Hitty Flo then took me to a Nurse Specialist's Office. Would you believe,
she is from Argentina and has only been on Hitty Street for a couple of weeks?
She is so beautiful and promised my nose would soon be as good as new! She put
the prettiest band-aid over my nose so it could be protected for a couple days
let me pick the biggest lollipop I'd ever seen! She warned not to
eat it all at once or I might be back in her office tomorrow with a tummy ache.
Pretty soon you could hear Hitty Flo singing as she took me back to my room to
get dressed.... Tonight there are fun things planned!
(My new favorite song)
"On the good ship 'lollipop'.
Its a sweet trip to a candy shop
Where bon-bons play
On the sunny beach of Peppermint Bay.
Lemonade stands everywhere.
Crackerjack bands fill the air.
And there you are
Happy landing on a chocolate bar.
See the sugar bowl do the tootsie roll
With the big bad devils food cake.
If you eat too much ooh ooh
You'll awake with a tummy ache.
On the good ship 'lollipop'
Its a night trip into bed you hop
And dream away
On the good ship 'lollipop'."
Lots of hugs... Molly Marie
Today, Molly is getting a touch-up coloring with her hairdo and later will be
having her eyes and lips with slight touch-ups done at the clinic. For the first
time ever, I had carved her with a little extra curls on the sides. Some of my
girls have ended up with almost no wood to have a hairdo!
I have removed a portion of a curl on each side of her face to allow me to make
a new nose and mouth. I let God guide my hands and hope everyone will be
comfortable with her outcome. A little added blessing is that after sanding and
applying the sealer, Molly's face is a lighter wood, so she is becoming even
more photogenic! I'm postng her current photo in my Grandma D'Marie album... as
you can see, she still brightens a room and holds her head high. Molly will soon
be ready to travel to her next hostess' home! Cosmetic hugs..... d'
Molly set off and traveling. She is on her way to Oklahoma to visit Kathleen and her Hittys.
