Double Platelets/Double Plasma

That's what I donated today at my local Bonfils Blood Center. Giving double portions is one of the ways we larger people can bless those around us with our excess girth. I used to be able to give triples, but I've been losing weight. Good for me, bad for y'all! ;-)

If you know your blood type, you can check their handy chart to see what they can use most from you.

I'm going to go drink some water and put my feet up. Catch you later!

*shudder* I'm glad you give blood. I did it once. I know it's a good thing to do, but I just can't. I hate needles.
That's so great that you donate! I really admire people who do that.
Good for you Jen (for donating & for losing weight!!). I need to call and make an appointment. And take my iron supplement--I hate getting to the donation center (after getting a babysitter) and then having them tell me my iron is too low.
I haven't donated since before DD. I really should go back and start donating again.
Have some OJ - the drink not the murderous criminal-

Me, I'm one of those 'rare avis' folks. I can accept blood from just about everyone. I guess I'm one of those people that is s*it out of luck when it comes to transplants, though. Yikes!
