"I was diagnosed with ESRD about a year ago.  I had gotten a surprise package in the mail one day from my boyfriend.  Confused, I opened it, and inside was a stuffed kidney!  He told me that since I didn't have ones that work, and he couldn't give me one of his, that he had to get me one of these.  I absolutely LOVE it, and it made me laugh so hard!   I take it to dialysis with me now, and everyone there always gets a kick out of it!  Even the nurses have to hug it!" A.S.
