Platelets

Gave platelets again today.....and got a special surprise. One of my favorite former co-workers came in to give blood while I was there! I had been on the machine about an hour when Paul got there, so by the time he was finished donating his unit of whole blood, I was almost done giving my unit of platelets. He came over and we chatted for a few minutes. It was so good to see him!

Ok, so explain this donation to me. The girls at LifeSouth said that It takes a little over an hour and that as you donate your whole blood, it re-enters your body. They said you get a recliner, blanket and movie. (That's enough right there!) Tell me more.

It's so cool to see fun people out "in the world" in unexpected places. Good job giving platelets :)
