For once, allow this Bglante to make an account in the first person. Ever since, we learn to dabble in journalistic pursuits, our accounts are always in the second person. Frankly, we hate to be called an 'I specialist".

Comes now this chronicle of our unfolding saga under the knife. Finally, after weighing the pros and cons of a permanent solution to our ailment (we have been undergoing dialysis since two years ago due to kidney disease), I have come to this greatest decision in my life.

First of all, I decided to make an essay with my date with surgery in order to generate sympathy in terms of prayer as I go under the knife.

Anytime, after I shall have finalized the details with my nephrologist at the Chong Hua Hospital with my kidney operations, then I will be ready to be replaced with this vital organ whose failure was detected two years ago.

I have set the timetable as within this year and if luck is with me, of course, with the help of your prayers, then I will have a brand new kidney by new year.

In other words, I am now willing to undergo a kidney transplantation.

Let's face it, the latest breakthrough in nephro science made a kidney disease no longer as deadly as say 10 years ago.

Unlike before when kidney ailment was considered as a rare disease. Not anymore. With the discovery of anti-rejection pills, kidney transplantation is already as ordinary as any organ operation like appendicitis surgery.

What is the common problem then of a kidney patient?

Any kidney specialist whether in Cebu or Manila will tell you that the common problem among kidney patients is money. According to this organ specialist, for as long as you have the money to sustain dialysis or the ultimate solution of a transplantation, kidney disease is definitely a curable disease.

If you ask a kidney specialist these days, you will learn that many patients let alone those who are suffering from high sugar level or diabetic are virtual ticking time bombs.

You can just imagine the number of patients that are afflicted by this debilitating ailment. Visit any hemodialysis unit in either the Ramiro Community Hospital or the Gov. Celestino Gallares Memorial Hospital and you will find out the reality on kidney failure incidents.

But there is life after a kidney problem. For as long as you maintain a positive attitude about kidney disease, there is no way that it is as deadly as some people suspected it to be.
