I donated Friday.  I checked and I have also topped a gallon.  I really appreciate this thread for reminding me to donate regularly.  Thank you for maintaining it.

I am home again and will start donating platelets much more regularly again.  I have only donated every other month or so for the last year (working out of state and only being home weekends has made it tough).  But my first regular bi-weekly appointment is for tomorrow.  It is nice to be able to get back to doing this more regularly!

They even got me on the first stick.  And I am now bleeding away-a large triple in less than 90 minutes.  Whee!!!

I've moved halfway across the state since my last donation, and had to wait for a blood drive to come to town to donate. Here, instead of the prepackaged stuff in the canteen, the local church ladies group makes homemade bars & sandwiches. They encourage you eat eat several.  ;D  Also, in return for donating, you receive a coupon for a free pint of Culvers frozen custard!

The only downside is that I'm in a different Red Cross district than I was before, so I have to get a new card & I don't think my previous donations will show up on my total.

It's a shame the previous donations don't carry over. But, cool! I'm thinking it's so worth it to get real goodies! I love that!

Congratulations on finding a place to donate!  And give one (or more) of those sweet ladies a hug for me next time you go.

Coming in as the last of April. Donated today, but, alas, I can't find a cute anecdote to append.

But I did schedule my next appointment to coincide with the summertime farmers market across the street.

Donating and then going across the street to get fresh produce. Sounds like a great plan to me!

Congrats on the donation! You're ending our month on a terrific note!!!

Congratulations, DottyG!  It simply feels marvellous when you finally manage to donate, doesn't it!

(Wouldn't it be nicer, though, if chocolate fell from the sky?  In small, bite-size pieces, I mean!) ;D

Dotty I always wanted to be a Marvel comics superhero but I guess donating blood may be the closest I get!
