So starting this friday I'll be visiting the Vampires to give blood for them to hold for my surgery. I get the privilege (LOL) of "donating" 4 bags of my blood just in case I need it. I doubt I will but you never know and my doctor has found that his patients do better if they receive their own blood instead of from the blood bank.

I've never had a doctor ask me to do this. So this is a new thing for me. I'm going to do it of course but I just love the verbiage they use of "donating" the 4 bags for my surgery. I've never donated blood before because I used to be on a lot of meds. Right now I'm on pain killers so they really don't want me donating.

Tomorrow I give blood for blood tests as well. So I'm making lots of Vampire friends. lol I also have my yearly physical next week Wed. I'm getting used to being prodded and poked. Not that I want to. Getting old sucks for now. I'm hoping it will be better later.

Have a great day tomorrow everyone!

    I've heard of this - thankfully I've never had surgeries of any kind so I don't have the experience, but in theory I suppose that sounds like a reasonable course of never knows what you may get from a "general public" blood bank (and I'm a veteran donor of many years standing)!

    Getting old may, indeed, s**k - but think of the alternative.......uh, I think I'll pass on that for now!


    I hope all goes well for you1
