Okay fellow bloggers... I gave blood again this week... so this is my friendly reminder to all:


I hope no one is getting tired of my friendly reminders... but oh well.
I went a couple of weeks ago and I was turned away for the first time in my life... because my iron level was at a 12.4 and it has to be at a 12.5 to be able to give. So that was disappointing. So, this week my brother said he would go with me and I was almost turned away again. They tested me in my left hand and my level was down in the 11 range, but they usually will test in the other hand to make sure. Thank heavens I was up in the 14 range, so they always take the higher reading. I GOT TO GIVE that day. WOO HOO!

Anyhow, I know there are some out there who cannot give because of certain reasons, but those of you who can give, I encourage it.

Until next time...

You are some sort of reverse vampire. You don't want blood, you want to GIVE it. I know your pediatric blood is a bragging point for you. I think it is hilarious. My mom is a bit of a blood bragger too.
As for me, I have never given blood. I have tried a few times but the timing is never right. They probably wouldn't want my regular blood anyway. It is nothing special.
