Giving Blood

Today P and I took our cars to get washed and detailed today. While we were waiting we decided to walk down the road and give blood. Well, originally I was going to give blood and P was going to wait, but the ladies working talked him into it. I try to give blood regularly because it is a pretty significant need. P however does not care for needles, so tends to say no when I ask him to come with me. So I was so proud of him when he decided to donate. Which, was hilarious by the way. P is a pretty tough guy, but when he decided to give, all the sudden he said his pulse went up, his hands got sweaty, and his heart started pounding. Then he started getting really chatty and making jokes. He then proceeded to eat a bunch of the snacks they offer after donations. Finally he sat down in the chair next to me, and gave blood. It was hilarious. P was so funny. But I am so proud of him for giving today.

I'm laughing at your description - that would be Doughbird. Thank you for giving blood. As a person who's been on the receiving end, your gift means life...

i think its great you give on a regular basis. i've given twice in my life, both times made me sick. i like to pretend its cause i'm too skinny ;) (i'm plenty over the minimum weight).

the first time i gave in honor of my husband (who was my bf at the time) he has hemophillia. then i found out he's never had human blood in his life!
