Gall bladder removal card
I enjoy making cards for family and friends and try to do it when I can. They're a fun challenge (most of the time) to make rather than slogging through stores for the right card. I have been hesitant to post them because I've looked at them as a gift unique to the person I sent it to, but a lot of time has passed with most of them. Maybe someone will find them inspiring.
In this case a family member was having his gall bladder taken out. It was a good organ gone bad. Who'll join the liver, pancreas and stomach? One of the kidney twins? The gloved hand would have come off better with the fingers facing out.
I thought about making a line of cards to dealing with serious illnesses and operations but never followed through. Why not a card specific for a heart bypass or brain surgery?
