I gave blood yesterday. The blood bank is trying to recruit more donors, so this month they are giving away a free movie tickets to anyone who gives blood. My husband donated also, so we get to go out on a movie date! The blood bank is particularly interested in recruiting O donors, so I not only got a movie ticket, but I also got a keychain with the slogan "I'm O so special." What a wonderful type O motto!
The blood bank provides cookies and fruit punch to donors, both of which are avoids. I took a bottle of pineapple juice to drink while my system stabilized. Afterwards I went to the health food store. Fresh baby okra was in! I don't like the thick woody okra that is normally in the produce department, which means I usually eat frozen okra. Fresh okra is a treat. I also bought beef liver to quickly replenish the iron I had lost. I had liver & grilled onions before leaving for school.
My pulse was 56 and my blood pressure was 104/70. I'll report cholesterol numbers when they come in.
