Lifesaving Spuds

The above photo is of a squirt gun that I saw just laying in the park the other day. I know that I take some odd ball photos but some people really like them. If you want to see more of my strange pics click here to go to my Flickr page.

Read this to feel better about humans :-)

I realized last night that there are still some good people in the world. About the time I had given up on humanity I got a phone call last night from The Spud King at instantmash.net that really made me think. What you have to know is that I have never met The Spud King but that I read his blog often. He called me last night out of the blue just to tell me that he would actually give me a part of his liver if it would help me to survive. Thinking about this now over again almost brings me to tears. What an amazing and generous offer!

The problem is however that my liver is beyond the point in regard to damage where a partial donor transplant would help me. But if that option was available, this man, that I have never met offered to save my life. He offered to give me many more years with Megan. He offered to give me many more years to take pictures and laugh and walk on the beach.

Spud...from the bottom of my heart: Thank you! You are an amazing man.

With that I will close this post and go back to thinking about what to write next. How could I possibly follow this up? I will try soon. Thank you for reading. Smile today.

Many people care about you! Not just me and The Spud King. I'd give you the world if I could. I wish so much that I could help you with your family problems right now. If they could just set pasts aside and let things go, they'd be able to enjoy you as much as the rest of us do!

By the way, Spud, thank you from the bottom of my heart as well! We'll have to arrange to meet some day soon. I'd love to face-to-face thank the person housing that incredable heart!

Ya know, he kinda sounds this nice in his blog. So I'm not really that surpised by his offer.

Thanks for contacting me and I will be back often.

It's nice to know there are still people like that around...

About me

  • I'm Ruben
  • From Modesto, California, United States
  • This space could be a million lines long but I will try to make a long story short. In April of 2003 I was diagnosed with a rare terminal liver disease and treated for Hodgkin's Lymphoma in my neck. Because of the combination of diseases and amount of liver damage, doctors estimate that I have between 2 and 5 years to live. Hence the name of this site, "Each Day Counts." If I cannot win this battle I will fight, love and travel until the very end!
