Blood Donation

After donating blood, a few extra vials are taken for tests.

For the longest time, I’ve been meaning to donate blood. This week, I finally did it.

I don’t get sick often, and I’m usually a pretty fast healer, so maybe I have unusually good blood, I thought. It couldn’t hurt to share some of it with others.
