Would anyone want to join me in a liver party?

Asked by MrGrimm888 (19124points) October 17th, 2022

I just got out of the ICU, from a successful liver transplant! For the religious, please say pa prayer for my anonymous donor.
I am in amazing pain, but otherwise I feel like a new man.

I owe my life, to the donor. I feel that I owe a debt, I cannot justify, nor repay. I have to pay for it. I have to be a better person and help others, as much as possible.

Mimishu1995's avatar

@MrGrimm888 well at least two good things came from that: you have your life and motivation to be better. That should be a reason for a party :)

A dear friend of mine is in the same boat as you. His transplant was last week. I saw his scar. Oh my!

Hang in there! We all love you.

I am so, so happy to learn this. I’m not religious, but I’ll light a candle for you at the first church I pass. I want you to know that there’s people all over the world, rooting for you and wishing you peace.

You are already a lovely person :] You can stop trying to fix yourself. You’re not broken.

raum's avatar

This is amazing news! So glad to hear from you, Grimm. And so thrilled for this news!

Should we all do a hurray-for-a-new-liver dance? What would that even look like? :D

squishy and red

Mimishu1995's avatar

So what do you want to eat for the party? With a liver transplant I’m not sure what you are allowed to eat.

MrGrimm888's avatar

^Hmm. I could probably do some sushi. Maybe spicy shrimp with brown rice rolls,? A dolop of Wasabi?
A pllumb juice to drink…

Mimishu1995's avatar


Someone brings one up please.

MrGrimm888's avatar

^ Thanks Mimi . You and I can eat together. I think I’m only on the first floor of the mansion,but we. Can eat by a window viewing the pond….
Anyone else care to join us?......

Hawaii_Jake's avatar

I want sushi!

Tropical_Willie's avatar

Sashimi – - – - low carb don’t need the rice.

Maybe Sea Urchin too !

Mimishu1995's avatar

@Tropical_Willie I got a chance to eat sea urchin some time ago. It wasn’t good at all. There was too much shell and water and not much meat. But then again the place I was eating in didn’t seem like a very reputable place. So maybe I will have another chance to eat real sea urchin?

MrGrimm888's avatar

I think that you are correct in your assessment of urchins .

Lightlyseared's avatar

I have 2 pet sea urchins. They are super cool – they like to carry stuff around on their bodies. 1 is currently carrying around a frag of zoas and the other has the molted skin of crab, and possibly a turbo snail. Don’t eat them…

@MrGrimm888 Congrats and a speedy recovery.

And a reminder to everyone that organ donation is a great thing, will absolutely save someone’s life and we should all consider becoming donors.

LuckyGuy's avatar

I’m sorry I am so late!
WOW! This is great news!!! You are on the upside now!!!

I am a donor. I signed up when I got my first motorcycle in my early 20s. Fortunately for me, but unfortunately for others, I never needed to donate any parts. (Although I would have been more than willing to donate my rotten prostate but nobody wanted it.)

kritiper's avatar

I hate liver. If it’s in the house I can tell the moment I come in the door.

(Congrats to you and deepest sympathy and respect for the donor.)
