Blood Drive Saturday

Today I went with Heidi to a blood drive! I've been to a blood drive once in college, but I didn't get very far in the process. Today, I did a little better... I ate breakfast before I went. I got a sticker that said "BE NICE TO ME, It's my First Blood Donation". I filled out a form for a donor card. A nurse took my temperature and blood pressure, then he poked my finger with a needle! Then he squoze my blood outa my finger to test it for iron. This was as far as I got. My iron was too low, and I therefore was not allowed to give blood.

Heidi, on the other hand, was a champ! Her blood was good to go!After the blood draw, we made sure to get her some snacks so she wouldn't pass out. :) THE END!

For reals! You seem to be having a hard time regulating your iron situation.

Props to you for attemtping to give blood...not sure I could do that.
