I failed platelet donation...

Will they confiscate my diploma?

To quote my reply to an email from Kathy A.:
"They blew out the vein on my left arm (after I'd been on the machine for about a half-hour) and then, when they moved over to the other arm, I started feeling woozy. Which, it turns out, is because my left arm was still bleeding pretty heavily.
I didn't give enough for them to use any of and I won't be able to donate again until December 5. I am disappointed."
And I got a lovely elbow bruise as a bonus! However, I'm ready to try again in December. Maybe next time, they'll listen to me when I tell them I don't think the needle is in right.

Hi Liz. I enjoy your blog very much. You get an "A" for effort!

I don't know if you'll remember me but I'm Paul Battaglia and I went to Stuy with you, a long time ago!

All the best!

Well done for the attempt. People like me (recipients) thank people like you (donors)!
