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.

Thanks. I currently find myself having trouble climbing stairs. I guess I just don't have enough oxygen-carrying capacity right now. This too shall pass...it takes a few days for erythropoeitin production to go up high enough to convince the body that more red cells are needed. At least I have an excuse to eat red meat! 8^)
