A good prick

Yesterday I gave blood to the Red Cross. Blood drive where I work collected about 33 units. The phlebotomist made me nervous because it didn't seem like he knew what he was doing. He had to draw lines on either side of a prominent arm vein and ask the boss about needle insertion. The donation went cleanly and other than a small red dot, you can't tell there was a needle used. :hapydance:

I am running a deficit having received 34 units and only contributing about a dozen... 

I'm over 14 gallons output (112 units). Not sure if I've ever received any. Don't think so and I'm trying to keep that record intact.

Yours or someone else's?

Sorry for not clarifying but the Red Cross won't accept blood that they did not draw directly from the donor. I should have realized robots would be unable to grasp the concept as they exchange oily fluids amongst themselves all the time.

Gotcha covered.

It seems like the needle sticking process is continually evolving. I've had them draw the lines on either side. The last time I think they drew a couple top & bottom. I have a great left arm site that the stickers absolutely love.
