Dolly Parton’s Mother Saved Her Life With Just A Needle

Date March 20, 2018

Dolly Parton has a childhood story that is worth knowing. One day her mother saved her life with just a needle. Sounds like a fantasy, right?

The 71-year-old Dolly Parton has shared this story recently at the Dr. Oz show. In happened in Tennessee when she was a small six-year-old girl. She was jumping over her fence and landed on a broken mason jar, which left her three toes in a very bad condition. Her family was afraid she could lose them at all.

Dolly Parton’s family couldn’t afford themselves a visit to the hospital, so they had to think about other ways to save her toes.

Her mother, Avie Lee, decided to “play a doctor” and to save her daughter’s life by sewing her toes back on. She was such a brave woman!

So they grabbed me up and all my dad and my brothers, they had to hold me down. Momma, she put cornmeal — now, you’re a doctor, you might know, I think the cornmeal was to absorb the blood. They put kerosene on it for antiseptic and momma took her sewing needles — she used to make our quilts and stuff, and she literally had to sew my toes back on. But they worked and they healed and I’m still walking on them.

Avie Lee did the job perfectly, and Dolly Parton indeed walks on her toes as nothing has ever happened. Dolly Parton’s story proves that we should never underestimate abilities of our parents, as sometimes they can do even something really impossible for their children.

Her childhood story is so impressive!
