Back From Barnesville!
Well, I made it back from Barnesville that is over three hours away. We had a large blood mobile of a goal of 500. It was at the highschool there and was quite a happening place! The kids were great! They worked real hard and succeeded in achieving their goal! Who ever said that teenagers are bad?!
I put in a double shift recruiting double red donors. Double red is the term we use to call people who are able to donate two units of red cells. Of course they have to meet our criteria in order to donate. We like to have this type of blood on stock for people who get multiple transfusions. A lot of times it is chemotherapy patients who need this type of blood.
Don't forget to donate blood!
