Dolly Parton Was So Poor Growing Up That Her Mom Had to Be the Doctor

 You think you're tough?  DOLLY PARTON was on "Dr. Oz" talking about the time her mother had to do emergency surgery on her toes by SEWING them back together.  She grew up dirt poor and the family couldn't afford a doctor.

 

 

She said, quote, "I six or seven years old.  I had jumped across the fence onto a broken Mason jar and cut three of my toes [almost] off and they were kind of hanging there. 

 

 

"So they grabbed me . . . my dad and my brothers . . . and had to hold me down.  Momma, she put cornmeal [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."  (People)
