today it worked

Hooray! My iron was OK, my pulse was OK, my blood pressure was OK, and I am now one pint lighter. Interesting fact: over my lifetime I have gone to give blood seventeen times, but only was able to give seven times. So they reject me over half the time ... but the bright side is, I'm one visit away from giving a gallon!

Sweet! Do you know your blood type? Just curious. I find that whole thing fascinating. That's the one thing I remember from that dumb bio class this summer, how to predict blood types of a child based on the parents. I'm A+. I started giving blood right after Emily was very sick and needed 2 transfusions. So, I'm all in support of blood donors. Yay for you!

I think I'm A-. Let's give blood together sometime :)
