    Congrats man!

    ... you don't look a day over 80

    I hit 25 donations and got my bronze card last year and took a break because I think I was donating too frequently. I'm gonna start again soon.

    I feel like a horrible person. Never given blood. Heck getting blood work done makes me cringe looking the other way. Idk.

    Is it really because they give you FREE cookies and soup??!

    I'd go again to the Eau Claire location if you wanna go. Are people required to do COVID testing beforehand?

    I realized my physio needling counts as acupuncture, so I self-excluded. I did like getting soup from some old lady. Not quite as good as the Hythe Central Store.

    No Covid-19 testing, some updated procedures again plus reconfigurations of the donor space and more specific Covid-19 questions.

    Sorry ES but no old ladies for quite a few years now serving up soup.

    D'z Nuts, I was on a bi-weekly schedule but I believe every platelet donor has been bumped to a 4 week schedule.

    Plasma is starting back up Monday but not sure at what frequency - used to be week.

    Crazy to think I've been donating for almost 40 years, started out whole blood then fairly quickly into plasma and then into platelets, probably have been doing platelets for over 30 years - it's weird in that I've seen CBS staff start their careers there as young people and have now watched them retire, sure do miss some of them.

    Yesterday was good bleed time, only 56 minutes on the machine and I did a concurrent large volume platelets and plasma donation as well - the other platelet donor was already on their machine when I got there and was still on the their machine when I left. In and out of the parkade in under 2 hours.

    I do full blood. The idea of being hooked up to that machine for so long seems very uncomfortable for me.

    The new generation platelet machines are amazing, I even had a short snooze yesterday while hooked up. Of course after donating so many times and pretty much all,out of my right arm because my left arm doesn't like bleeding, I have enough scar tissue built up on my veins where they insert the needle that I usually don't even feel that huge ass needle going in.

    For reference purposes, 16 gauge is what they usually use for platelet donations, 21 or 23 gauge is what is usually used for drawing blood for testing purposes at a clinic and yeah, I watch every time they put the needle in - just can't help myself.

    Spoiler for the more queasy ones - not sure if it worked...

    I didn't either until my first donation in 2018. Now I have a card that reminds me, and the app does as well. It's only 6-7 minutes of bleed time and then free goodies.


    I have donated three times since 2018 to try and figure out some iron issues--it was too high and then was too low (obviously goes down with donating but it was apart from that). Seems to bounce around for no apparent reason. Was too busy to go with finishing up uni but have an appointment for end of June at a mobile clinic in the SW.
