    Well this is a topic very close to my heart, or should I say kidney.
    Eight months and five days ago I received the ultimate gift of an organ.
    Not a day goes by that I don't think of my donor and her family and the incredible, generous decision they made.
    It changed our lives.
    All my family are registered and we would donate our childrens organs should such a tragic event unfold.
    If anyone is interested to read more, this is the thread I started after I got the phone call http://www.bubhub.com.au/community/f...t=Go+Kidney+Go

    I am but DH is resistant. My nanna got a new heart when I was a teen and because of that we got an extra 16 years with her. If it hadn't of happened she would have only lived 12 months.

    I feel so strongly that we should that I am trying to change DH's mind.

    I am. I am very passionate about it. My DH, my parents and anyone who will listen knows that when I die, they are to Donate and cremate. Why should I rot in the ground when I could be saving lives? My DH never used to be, but recently joined the register. He used to say he was uncomfortable but not sure why he didn't want to. I guess 9 years of hearing my reasoning wore him down haha! Haven't talked about the kids. Will add it to the list i guess.

    I would never override his wishes knowing he wants to be an organ donor.
    Can I ask why you're not?

    Yep. So is DH, and if anything were to happen to our kids I'd donate theirs as well.

    I am .
    DH isn't. He can't really explain why (not that he has to of course) but just doesn't want to.
    If the unthinkable happened, I would want DS to be an organ donor. I don't know if DH could be convinced.

    I'm not and neither is dh. partly something we've just never got round to updating/deciding to do.

    I guess that's just out of laziness really.

    there's no good reason really not to be, if I am unable to use my organs then there's no reason they shouldn't go to someone else in need.

    yet I have never updated my preferences. I can't put my finger on why not.

    Default Are you an organ donor?

    Absolutely. I get crazy passionate and angry about people not being organ donors. Not intending to horribly offend anyone, but I just can't fathom anything more selfish than refusing to help someone else live when you don't need your organs anymore. I usually try hard to see things from others point of view, even if I disagree, but this is one thing I just cannot.

    My ex mother in law always refused to be an organ donor, but was more than happy to jump on the waiting list when she needed a lung transplant! I asked her if she had now changed her mind on organ donation and whether she would sign up for any organs they could use now that she knew what it felt like to be the person who needs an organ. She said 'nope, I still don't want anyone to have mine, but I hope someone gives one to me'. Disgusted me.

    Yes, that way I can live forever!

    It's the ultimate recycling.
