Here it is. My call for cool stuff. Plus a glimpse inside my life. My hubby has type 1 diabetes (since age 3) and has many complications from it. We're just starting the process of getting a pancreas transplant, which would make him not diabetic (something he's never known) and has the possibility of reversing all of his side effects. This would be amazing for us, as he lives in pain daily.

Anyway, on with the story. I was searching Etsy for something cool and pancreas-y. Nothing. I found 1 magnet and 2 (pricey) embroidered pancreases. I was thinking about getting him something to celebrate. Maybe a cool shirt, a funny card, nothing super expensive. I also tried "diabetes" and all I found were medical alert bracelets & food. So - the call. Make something cool! I want to buy it. Ok? Organs are "in" right now. There are hearts and brains all over the place.

So get to work. Make me a pancreas.

I think that's so sweet of you to find a pancreas-y gift! Haha! I love it.

You might try alchemy if you don't find anything else.
