Bought this for a friend who is going through some stuff medical issues involving her kidneys. She took it to her latest infusion session and the nurses were just gushing over it. My friend loved it as well.
My dad had his kidney removed last year due to cancer. He was so happy on Christmas to "get his kidney back" as the surgery and recovery were very difficult. He still has cancer as it spread to the ureter and bladder but his "Kidney Bean" keeps him happy. Thank you for making this!
After finding out on Thanksgiving Day of all days, that my wife had a 12cm mass on her right kidney, that doctors were 95% sure was cancerous, I wanted my wife to be able to wake up, to something that would cheer her up as best as possible. Enter who I dubbed, Katie Kidney, a cute plush friend that is there to hug, and in a sense give her two kidneys again.
Katie Kidney came into her life at a very good time, as on New Year's Day, we had to put our 17 year old cat down. Katie Kidney, in a sense helped take her place too, because my wife and cat snuggled each night at bed time. Katie gave her a new, soft bedtime friend to comfort her, and maybe even collect some of her tears.
In what will go down in history as the worst holiday season ever, finding out on Thanksgiving Day about the tumor, having the nephrectomy on Christmas Eve, eve, and losing our cat/family member on New Year's Day, I Heart Guts, was the one bright spot. I asked if there was anything they could do to expedite my order, so I could get it in time for my wife's surgery, and they made it happen. Thank you for bringing a little bit of happiness to my wife at one of the lowest points in her life.
By, the way, Katie Kidney and the "When Urine Love" socks, were a huge hit with all the medical staff during my wife's hospital stay, and probably put me in close contention for Husband of the Year.
Thank you again!
Oh my gosh, we are all rooting for your wife and you and Katie Kidney, too! You do sound like Husband of the Year material...
I bought this after coming across the website. I just had to get a cute organ plush and the kidney one caught my eye. Totally not disappointed.
I bought myself this guy to help keep me company during my upcoming kidney stone surgery. It's so cute and soft! The absolute best texture.
Glad our stuffed kidney could be by your side to get rid of those awful painful stones!
