After 9 months of being pregnant and then 11 months of getting my iron up to a normal state, I was able to donate blood yesterday. They have been calling for the past 11 months, asking me to come in. When they called last week saying they had low supply for O- blood. I figured it was time to go in. With the 4th of July coming up, I figured some crazy people might need my blood. I had an appointment in the middle of the day so I was able to leave the kids with the husband.
When, I finally got up I was happy for the cookie and a cup of coffee. I may of had two cookies.
Since, I had an appointment I made sure to get my 20 minutes of run/walk in before I left. For day 3 I completed 1.25 miles.
Do you donate blood?
