Death and organ donation are not a pleasant thing to think of, let alone discuss about. And if it's difficult for us, imagine how it might feel during the death of a loved one. The medical staff who fought to save the patient's life finds it just as difficult to accept death and talk about it.
Making a decision to donate the organs & tissues of a loved one who just passed away may not be easy. It is by pledging our organs and tissues during our lifetime that we make this decision-making process easier and less stressful for our relatives.
We were watching TV one evening when this organ donation issue pops up.
“ B, do you ever think of donating part of your organ when you die?” i asked
“Ya, maybe i may. I’ll give away my heart, liver, lungs, kidneys and my eyes!”
Excuse me? You are using very high power thick glasses, and you cannot live a day without cigarette!
Ok, probably just the kidney, then!
Huh! Hajat besar tu...!
