Clinic Faces

It’s like riding a bike. Except I was laying down, and I got to read. What I mean to say is that I still haven’t forgotten how to give blood. I put myself on hold for donations since before Beet was born, and today was my first one in over five months. My how times flies.

Not much has changed at that clinic. A lot of the same friendly faces, a lot of the same cookies and juice.

The donation took a little under five minutes. In fact the nurse doing the labelling of the various bags and collection tubes didn’t get to finish before I did.

I had eaten dinner just before going so I didn’t really feel like eating a bunch of cookies, but the volunteers get a little cranky if you don’t follow the rules. I managed to choke back a couple cookies 😉
