Picture reposted in in correct orientation - that's what happens when you're an old guy attempting to take a selfie with his left (not dominant) hand.
Today was donation 142 - a large volume platelet donation which is close to the equivalent of 2 regular platelet donations. There is no rhyme or reason to why one person has high platelet counts and another has a low count and today my count was at 306 which is low for me - that meant 75 minutes on the machine and usually I'm in the 65 minute range,. Of my 142, probably 110 have been platelets, around 20 plasma and the last 12 whole blood - started off as a whole blood donor, moved to plasma and then platelets.
