Crocheted kidney

I have horseshoe kidneys, and I’ve been experiencing kidney pain for a few months now, and off and on for at least the last 12 years. I finally got a diagnosis of UPJ and a crossing vessel is obstructing my ureter on the left side. I have exploratory surgery on February 7th to see what my anatomy is like since I’m not normal (anyone that knows me knows I’m not normal. My kidneys decided to be weird, too :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:). From there a decision on which surgery will be done and then they’ll schedule another surgery to fix the problem.

I decided to make my surgeon a kidney. I’ll give it to him when I see him in a few weeks.

Sending healing vibes! I made an “angry gall bladder” for a friend for her gall bladder surgery & even tho it was like 5 minutes of work the night before, the hospital staff went bonkers for it. Your surgeon is going to love this beautiful skilled craft!
