Of all the medicine in the world, love is possibly the best of all. Just ask Lizzy the koala mom and her joey, Phantom.

 A little koala joey has a promising career as a medical professional should he choose to take that route. After successfully assisting during his mum's surgery by providing cuddles, the little guy has proven to be both useful and adorable.

Lizzy the koala was hit by a car on the Warrego Highway in Coominya, Australia, according to the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital's Facebook page. Her joey, Phantom, was unscathed, but Lizzy suffered facial trauma and a collapsed lung.

Phantom is only six months old and too young to be without mum, so the doctors let him stick around for the live-saving procedure, perched on mum's neck. His hugs seemed to do the trick, and Lizzy is on the road to recovery.
