Adieu to a Uterus

Someone close to me had to have their uterus removed last month,
and her friends threw her a party to say, "Farewell" to the uterus. 
They even made her a red velvet cake to commemorate the occasion.

I got her a gift.

It's a plush uterus! 
The pink arms are fallopian tubes, and the purple balls are ovaries.
The purple bit at the bottom of the uterus is the cervix.

How cool is that?!

Someone told me that they bought this same uterus for
their OB/Gyn when he delivered their third child.

I love the company, I Heart Guts, that sells these plush organs and T-shirts. 

If you are a woman about to have, or have had a hysterectomy,
you need to visit HysterSisters.
It's a seriously awesome site for female support.

This is a woman singing farell to her uterus.
It's hilarious.
(and has a few cuss words, just to let you know)

Oh my, how fun! I've been asking for years to have mine removed, but when you are married to a Doc, elective surgery is frowned upon! thanks for sharing this site!

I'm going to check it out. My daughter may be donating a kidney this summer. She is going through tests right now. She would think it funny if I got her a plush kidney.

Oh my goodness! Thanks for sharing the video. I haven't laughed that hard at work in a very long time!
