First of all, this appendix is adorable. You cannot help but smile looking at it. For such a little vestigial organ, this fella is quite the size! A solid plushie too. Worth every cent.
I received a double organ transplant (kidney and pancreas) but I didn't expect to lose this little guy too. Prior to surgery, my awesome surgeon quickly said he would remove my appendix. I was sleepy so I said OK! Days after surgery, I asked my nurse if I heard correctly in that my appendix was long gone as medical waste. She didn't know if it was surgical humor or I really did have my appendix removed. After a quick check, yes, the little gut I never thought about was gone forever.
So, when I received gifts post-surgery, this plush appendix was there! Someone actually listened to me! Now, I can look at this adorable, and large, plush appendix and forget I ever lost the real deal.
I'm currently finishing an ultrasound program and my classmates and I are leaving school to our clinical sites, so we decided to get our instructors guts before we leave after tomorrow! I got the heart, uterus, and spleen for my vascular, OB/GYN, and abdomen instructors respectively - they are so perfect for them! My clinical coordinator was in lab one day helping us scan and with more enthusiasm that I've ever seen from her, she said, "Bring on the challenge, I LOVE finding appendixes!” And so of course, we decided she NEEDED that appendix. Super fast shipping, I got my appendix in two days! Just in time to give all my instructors their designated organs on our last day of school tomorrow.
