My good friend has a very bad case of mono, and the doctor says that he mustn't do anything strenuous or he could damage his spleen.  So I made him a little card to make him laugh (but hopefully not too much; we certainly wouldn't want to rupture any internal organs).


 
aaaannndd a close up...



The inside has a little note about spleens and their functions.




All in all, I think it turned out very well.  Now I must go study for finals... like I should have been doing...

This is great!  So much better to personalize your cards.  My father-in-law had hernia surgery last summer and I made him a get-well card that said, "I hope you are groin to feel better soon."

That is so awesome. I know I would have loved that when I had mono (ugh...a month and a half in bed, and 4 months of no sports...not fun when sports are a huge part of your life)

That's really cute!  I had my spleen removed when I was little, the result of a "harmless" blood disorder.  I have never actually taken the time to research the functions of the spleen, I just always sort of took the doctors/my parents word that it really isn't necessary.  And I suppose I can't miss what I never remember having.  Anyway, super cute card.  Much better than "get well soon".

Thank you all for the great comments!
I gave the card to my friend a couple weeks ago and he thought it was absolutely hilarious.  YES! Mission complete!
And who knew that spleens served in the destruction of old red blood cells.
This was a very educational project for me! Grin

That is a great idea!!!  When I had mono my slpeen hurt for like 4 months ( I had a really bad case that lasted about a year).  It would have been nice if I got a card like that.  Smiley
