So.... We had this debate. A couple of my siblings and I. About kidneys. It goes like this. Would you donate your kidney to your loved one? You trust your brutally honest Mamuje to scream a resounding NO! I told them point blank I wouldn't give a kidney to any of them. Not even my mum that I love so much. My argument....well it's easier said than done.
On my first date with some dude last year he told me he had had a kidney transplant and transplant patients barely survive 10 years after transplant....unless of course they get more donors. I also recall watching an episode of America's Got Talent last month and one of the contestants talked about how he had 3 transplants. 1 from his sister and 2 from his cousins. I commend them. I have a lot of respect for them. It's not easy to have that amount of love for a cousin, I tell ya!
I remember one of my exes who could do anything for me to make me happy. Absolutely anything. We went to Yankari Game Reserve sometime in 2005 and we were chased by at least 5 elephants. Oh boy, you need to see the way dude ran like speedy Gonzales in front of me. I could only see the sole of his feet and dust....then how can he give me a kidney?!
Anyway, my brother gave me the stare as I vehemently refused to release my kidney. As if to say 'chill out G, it's not like you've been asked to donate one yet'. He said it was no big deal as he would give his wife if she needed it. I do not believe him. I believe I have the ability to even be more sympathetic than him.
Ok, when I am old and grey and I pass away.....(of course my kids would be out of it. But God forbid that they need a transplant) I can
donate my offals to someone who really needs them. But not while I am breathing. I believe to each
his own. So tell me, would you even consider donating a kidney if someone is in dire need of it. I welcome your opinions. This should be
