I’ve had an ideal life for as long as I can remember, sweet and simple.Everything was perfect and fairytale-like. Too good to be true.My father did have hepatitis once when I was young but he recovered just fine. Life moved on streamlined and I got admitted to medical school. Never did I know that everything would change so suddenly.
At the beginning of last year, my father got really sick. Within a month or so his health deteriorated rapidly. He was diagnosed of liver cirrhosis but the most painful fact was that 80% of his liver had already been damaged.It was the darkest day of my life.The doctor had told us that a person can only survive with 25% of liver but not with 20%. I have always been an emotionally strong person but that night I broke. That day i cried my heart out to God! My mom already left us when i was just 13, Why? because of Money! well she doesn’t deserves to be called as mother, i rather call her Tanu! Well leave her! She was never my mother but my one aunty! I call her as Tweety, she is our neighbour ,she has always fulfiled each responsibility that a mother does and so i hav nevrr felt like i didn’t had mothrr! and i guess Papa loves her! But last year as his health got much serious ,I didn’t knew what to do because i can’t even imagine my life without him! He was unconscious for 5 days and i couldn’t handle myself, tweety also broke down! But she supported me at each stage! Finally i gathered some courage and went to Papa who was unconscious as a daughter I scolded him, but he wasn’t listening because he was unconscious! I still remember my words …
Flashback starts :
Tweety ask papa to get up na! it’s been 3 days he isn’t talking to me, he isn’t scolding me, no one is teasing me! Ask papa to get up! what’s this, he is looking so weak, he always asks me to be strong and now he is looking so weak! …
Sona! Please bacha, he will wake up, do not cry if your papa would see you in this condition he will scold you!
He will scold me? oh wow! Fantastic! Wait i will go near him….
Okay so yes papa you will scold me? you will scold your sona? You know what if you won’t give me answer na i will scold you much! Get up papa! Com’on see i know you have bad habit of doing worst pranks and i know this is also your plan to tease me! because i know you can’t leave me! please papa enough of your plan get up! See papa doctor is saying so rubbish things, okay okay if you want me to talk respectively then i will! If you want me not to tease Tweety na, i won’t tease her! if you want me not to spend much time at phone, i won’t! If you wanna tease me, yes tease me but please not in this way! You want to call me mouse? call me i won’t resist! you wanna call me shona mona? call me, i won’t say anything! You want to spend some time with tweety, okay then quickly get up so that i can give you a surprise ! okay okay i m not keeping it as any suspense! When you will get up na, I will ask tweety to get married to you! I know you love her! Right? See na get up and see how tweety is blushing it means tweety also loves you! Get up……… please….. Enough! There is a limit for everything ,enough of your worst prank!
Ah then I cried bitterly! It was seriously worst day of my life, he wasn’t listening to me, tweety was supporting me much but then doctor came and said….
Sona, don’t cry! we have only one way and that’s liver transplant!
pragya i mean tweety and I went through the HLA test for cross matching. I swear that it was the most critical moment of my life. When the test reports finally came, it was I who was perfectly compatible as a donor.I knew that this was the answer to my prayers and not for a moment was I afraid of the transplant because I knew that I was doing it solely for my father. We both went through an 18 hour long surgery and Thank God the operation was a success. Within a month both my father and I recovered completely which itself was a miracle.
Yeah it was the best day and then Pragya arora became Pragya Abhishek Mehra! My father was very happy with the marrige ,i had no objection over it as I also loved tweety more than mother! We became a happy family! I m 20 today and whenever I mention my story to anyone, their reactions include phrases like “great sacrifice” “grand gesture” etc. However, I completely disagree with their judgement for we can never repay for the million sacrifices our parents have made for us since the day they brought us into this world. Maybe, just maybe I got lucky enough to give him back a little part of me, something that already belonged to him. For he is my dearest asset, my greatest blessing, my safe haven and the center of my universe. My dad is my superhero and whenever I look at him healthy and fine, my heart lightens up.
It’s been almost been a year now, and everytime I look back to this incident my heart speaks out “KUN FAYAKUN (كُنْ فَيَكُونُ)”
My Lord says “Be! and it is”.
Happy Fathers day Guys! The real superheros are our father take a minute and thank them for everything! ?
and yes guys be sure that this is real story of a daughter who actually donated a part of her to her father! And i thought to present it to you in some different way hope you liked it!
Thanks… Stay Blessed
