    Thank you again, blood donors!

    Having spent nearly all of January and February in hospitals, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you who has ever donated blood.

    During that time, I nearly bled to death twice; and were it not for the twelve people who donated a pint of AB negative, or the countless people who donated platelets (it takes a lot to get two units worth of that stuff!), I would not be here today.

    Donating blood is always a good thing. :-)

    I hope you're on the mend now, Wotan. Best wishes to you.

    Glad you are able to post Wotan. I do donate and it's good to hear from people that benefit!

    I'm happy to see that you're up to posting again, Wotan. I also donate. The person at the other end always seems sort of abstract so it is really nice to hear from someone who receives.

    I donate as well. They sometimes hook me to the IV and machine to get ...whatever they are trying to get.

    as much as i wish i could donate blood (i really do wish i could), i'm a blood fainter person, and i cannot stand the sight of needles. i give all you people who donate so much gratitude cause i wish i had the bravery you all have. if i could be knockout before giving blood i would seriously do it!

    GummiBears, I'm sure that if you told them this when you went, they could work something out (like put a sheet or something up so you couldn't see), but whether you ever do it or not, thanks for the sentiment.

    I wish I could donate too, as a thanks to all those who have in the past, but it's just not possible medically anymore. My father, who also had the same rarer blood type (AB-) had donated over 30 gallons by the time he died.

    Again, it's very safe to say that without the numerous people (probably over 50) who donated, I would only be here with you folks in spirit!
