Blind Item #8

This former A list mostly television actor who has permanent A list name recognition despite not being the star of anything non-reality related in a very long time drinks about two liters of vodka a day all measured out into 16 ounce water bottles which he drinks from all day. Apparently at this point his liver is in horrible shape and is going to need a transplant.

People who destroy their liver through alcohol/drug abuse shouldn't be permitted to receive liver transplants to begin with.

Liver transplant isn't that bad anymore. They take 2/3 of someone's healthy liver and put it in the recipient. The donor has a harder time of it, but their liver grows back in months.

Holy Hoff, Batman! I hope he has a donor liver already banked. That's awful.

Sherry said...

Robert, I could be wrong (wouldn't be the first time TODAY) but I think they take that into consideration when they put you on the donor list. Someone here will correct me.

Just to be diffrent because the Hoff still is huge in Germany Mr. Spock Leonard Nimoy.

sandybrook said...

They aren't supposed to give liver transplants to alcohol abusers but a couple of decades ago they gave one to Mickey Mantle who was a demon drunk and because of who he was got moved up the list. They they later found him with cancer and he died anyway after the transplant.

$$$$ talks when it comes to transplants, everyone else must follow the rules.

di butler said...

Larry Hagman was getting replacement parts like Mr Potato Head gets new noses, back in the day. Money and fame, and you can get a orphanage of young donor babies, bred w your own DNA.

Count Jerkula said...

You can wait on a list for a liver or solicit a donation on your own. That is what Superstar Billy Graham did a few years ago.

I think all you need to match is blood type and be a similar size. Like a 5'2, 120lb dude couldn't donate to a 6'5, 280lb dude. Not enough liver there.

Fascinating article: Did Steve Jobs Steal a Liver?

di butler said...

Cool. Thanks, 7.

$$$$$$ talks indeed

Larry Hagman had a liver transplant due to alcoholism. Then apparently he had a second one cause he couldn't stop drinking.

SueRH said...

Geez, and I worry when I have one glass of wine too many!

Sprink said...

Really? So this like "good aids" vs "bad aids"?

NaughtyNurse said...

No donor livers are given to actively drinking alcoholics. Recipients must be in recovery. Of course, nothing stops them from falling off the wagon once they've got their new liver.

a friend of mine was in the hospital a few years ago, in a semiprivate room with only a curtain separating beds. he could hear every word between and alcoholic in the next bed and the hospital case worker. he was shocked at how blunt the case worker was. it basically boiled down to the case worker telling the alcoholic he has destroyed his liver, and due to his alcoholism would not be put on a transplant list because he would destroy that one too. essentially telling him he's going to die. the guy was pleading for his life and the case worker was tough as nails.

That worker was right, though. Maybe the guy got his shit together after that, but I doubt it.

They get put on the wait list but at a low priority

Lke Justice in the courts, medical miracles are only available to the very wealthy in America. Poor slobs can rot in jail or die in a charity hospital ward.
