I used to be bothered by the looks of gallstones,
cataracts, tonsils, etc. after they were in a takehome
bag after several months. You DO have those people out
there that no sooner have you stepped into their house
for supper they stick this bag in your face and say,
"See what I had taken out in surgery!??"

Then you politely say, "Uh, can we eat at 8:30 tonight
instead of 6, I'm not hungry right now!?"

So, the way I dealt with this is, I got permission to
make paperweights in plastic and put a nice colored
card with our hospitals' logo on it that said, "Thanks
for choosing XXXXX Medical Center"  It was a very nice
way to present those take home specimens. I got the
method to work fast with little hands on time. Haven't
done it for over 15 years and don't remember the
company that I got the "cold plastic" from but imagine
the internet would come in handy here.  Someone
suggested embedding their hospital bill in the
paperweight!!! (I paid this much for this procedure
and look what I have to show for it)

Now people could eat supper at 7:00 p.m. instead of
