Well today I was able to donate blood another time! This time I was able to have my two sisters and husband go with me! They donated as well, this means 12 lives are going to be helped! I love going with others to donate, it is always a fun experience!
If you are wondering how it goes when you donate you can check out the website or let me take you on a tour of my donation!
Starting at the top left & going left to right!
Grab a blood donating buddy!
Find a location to donate at!
Answer the questions, they test your blood for iron/hemoglobin level, blood pressure, and pulse are taken.
They take you to the nice comfy donation table/chair thingy. Mark the spot.
Insert needle, it only stings for a moment my friends!
Hold for 5 counts, let go for 3, repeat.
And in no time at all, you have your donation given!
They remove the needle, you hold a little bandage with arm up, then you are done!
I was in and out in less than an hour from start to finish!
Then I was lucky and got to have some snacks and water or juice or coffee!
It’s seriously a good time my friends!
We would love to add more people to our #pfwg44thbirthday! We have added another five stones (another friend gave yesterday)! That means we only have 30 more times to donate to reach the goal of 44 donations by December 26th! I am so proud of those that have donated and helped our team!
I am enjoying each time I go and donate. Having family and friends joining me in this journey has been very rewarding! I’d like to say thank you!
Grace is a gift,
