Blood Donation

I gave blood on Wednesday afternoon. It was one of the most painful blood-donation experiences I've had--the phlebotomist was new, and kept missing the vein. Even the more experienced phlebotomist she asked for help had to root around a bit to find it. I still have a bruise today.

I filled up my donation card on this visit; I've now made 12 donations in Pittsburgh--which is really much less than I feel I should have made by now. My jokes about "since I've filled up the card, I get the next one free" appeared to be lost on the staff.
