"Dengan nama Allah yang Maha Pemurah lagi Maha Penyayang"
Nope. Not talking about sharing a meal of kidney beans. But sharing kidney. Or so the Malay calls it, buah pinggang. It amuses me sometimes when Malay words becomes more appreciated. Like, when U mention, buah pinggang, why do they call it buah pinggang? Maybe because it looks like a lump of buah, and it is situated at the pinggang, aight? It does make sense. Aheh.
Alright. I actually wanted to share what was made out of one of the lectures that I went. Alhamdulillah. As usual, I wouldn't want to write something very academic, or article-that-are-packed-with-jargons-which-I-myself-need-dictionary-to-always-refer-on-to. ^_^. We had like a back to back lectures on kidney under the homeostasis panel. And I nearly gone into a state on 'delirium', when at one of the last session, a patient came in, with his wife.
So, when they finally got a chance to talk, the husband started to describe what he had. I was not paying full attention, until his wife started taking his place, and talk non-stop. Haha. Woman. Which I am. Hehe. Well, she started explaining things. And I'm like, “Slalu gini la, the other half would know better on how to explain stuff, from another perspective”. Because, usually, the patient might not be in the best state, or perhaps, since the other person might be with the patient everytime, so they know better, in a way. But that's not the case. And so this is where they got my full attention.
The husband got like some inflammation in the kidney or something, and within time, will develop kidney failure. This means, he might need dialysis, or will die or something (Read: I was not paying attention before.. huhu). So, as an alternative, he needed a kidney transplant. Kidney transplant is not as easy at it sounds. We need a match, which most of the time, hard to find. Not just difficult to find a match, it's even difficult to even get a donor. If there's no living donor, they might need to consider a cadaver (dead people) donor. Hurm.
So, with Allah's power, the wife's a match. She wanted so much to give one of her kidney to her husband. But her husband refuse. Who would want to hurt the person they loved, right? But at the same time, the wife said, “I can't just sit there and watch my husband died”. Subhanallah. I was nearly in tears. (Read: Nearly ok, not already). So, after much arguments, and a long time it was, the husband finally decided to have the kidney. Aww, this is what I call a fairytale. In the end of their story, the wife said, she is alright, and what makes her world brighter, is seeing her husband, next to her, alive and healthy.
So to say, what did I get from my-so-called-fairy-tale-story. I am an organ donor. I agree that if I die, and my organ can be donated, then so be it. But, that's not always the case. Not every organ donor have the chance to actually donate their organ. And yet, I'm like, 'dicabar', how about being a living organ donor? What if, my dad needs a kidney, and I'm a perfect match. But since I'm not married yet, and not yet pregnant, if I donated one of my kidney, my pregnancy process will be very very difficult. Allah haven't tested me yet on that. To say, the couple, Allah tested them, and they pass, in their way. Though they may not make the best out of the test, not having to know 'hikmah' behind it, they are lucky. What if it happens to me, will I pass? Will I see the 'hikmah' behind it? I pray that I'll be the lucky, and strong, if, that happens.
But seriously, ini lah baru dikatakan pengorbanan suami isteri. For some couples out there, setakat habis duit beli topup, or berjimat sebab nak belikan hadiah utk gf or bf. That's nothing. This is one of the sacrifices that truly can test you. Aheh. This is what you get from a non-married person. Barakallahufikum!
