Her mother Jenn Thelen, a nurse manager at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, had heard her daughter's real-life screaming over the discovery of her fanciful character and his injury. Her solution? To get their little Christmas friend into surgery - and quick! "I told Aubrie not to worry because Arnold Palmer Hospital has the best medical team and "special doctors" who could fix Sam's injuries and put him back together in no time", she said.

Without further ado, Jenn tucked Sam into her bag and took him to work the following morning. Scroll through to see Sam's speedy recovery from start to finish.

Since elf rules state that sam can not be touched, the team secured a pair of special operating gloves directly from Santa. Aubrie knew that the elf could not be touched, but Jenn told her that the "magic gloves" would allow the team to work on the elf.

In the end, Sam was all patched up and was even treated with magic medical glitter.
