Uaaah! I did it! I’ve just completed my “first-blood-donation”-challenge! Actually I have an horror of syringes!!! Anyway, I wanted to do it much earlier, but I either I missed the date or nobody had time to join me… (I didn’t want to be alone on my first donation day)
Everything went very smoothly and I was very impressed that is wasn’t as “brutal” as I thought I look forward to the next time!
So now, my body and my pricked arm need some rest!
Some unbloody photos of my first blood donation (my lovely sister joined me)!
Blood Pressure. Checked.
Blood Control. Checked.
My equipment *g* chocolate, grape sugar, infusion bag and….
…a thick syringe!
The process passed very quickly & without any complications
It didn’t hurt =)
BTW, 4.6dl flowed through that pipe ^^
poor Sis – she had to prick twice >o<
but she’s a tough girl ; )
