Give 'til it squirts

I just gave blood. For the first time (for me), they let me give two units rather than just one. They pheresed the red cells out and gave me some of my plasma and platelets back, so I'm not more volume depleted than normal. Of course, I can't give again until October, but I think it's darn nifty.

You know, I was just thinking today about the time I was heading to lunch and you were coming back from giving blood, and I was so proud of you. So many people who CAN just don't. It's silly.

It's been a rough year
I hadn't given blood since December. Every time I turned around since that point, if there was a blood drive, I had a cold. Luckily, the weather seems to finally have decided that summer's here. I haven't had a cold in a few weeks.
