Selena Gomez has since posted a thank you to her friend online, which shows the pair recovering after the surgery. The pop star shared the news of the kidney transplant in an Instagram post showing her and Raisa smiling and holding hands in side-by-side hospital beds.
Gomez described her most-recent transplant as 'what [she] needed to do for [her] overall health'. Until then I want to publicly thank my family and the incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me before and post-surgery'.
"There aren't words to describe how I can possibly thank my attractive friend", Gomez wrote.
Bless her, Gomez has made a slight factual error here: the ultimate gift is, in fact, a boxed 1986 Sindy Ballerina, blonde, with moveable joints. I am incredibly blessed. 'I love you so much sis'.
