    Blood Letting w/ ~Barn~

    So I'm due for another blood donation with Bonfils, and I thought I might try and make a pseudo-event out of this, and invite all the non-pansies out there.

    I'm thinking of scheduling an appointment here in the next couple weeks, so if anybody wants to join, let me know.

    The two donation centers that I'm kind of fond of, are the Lowry location, and the one out by Jillians. I'm okay with either one, so if anybody does want to go, I'll probably just make a ride out of it. Unless of course the weather is lousy.

    Hopefully I don't have to tell you the benefits of giving blood (both to the recipients and the donor, in the case of males), but if you have any questions about it, I imagine I can answer them.

    You can post up or PM me if you're interested, and we can coordinate our appointments.

    EDIT: I'll also just bump this thread every 52 days (or whatever the waiting time is, between donations), so if you don't go on this one, there will be more occassions.

    That is definitely true! If you've F'd up, and done caught something, your blood will be discarded and they will let you know to stop donating.

    I'm guessing that they won't tell you why, which would lead me to being seriously freaking nervous, but I guess atleast then you could go to your normal doc, and have them tell you what the story is.



    Good call, Aaron.

    I think the letter they send you tells you what it's "contaminated" with.

    Re: Blood Letting w/ ~Barn~

    Because of my trip to Tulum earlier this year I cannot donate for one year!! It sucks because Performance Cycle does a blood drive the 1st thursday of every month and the more you donate the more you get entered into drawing for cool prizes!! Oh well maybe next year sometime after March 2006...!!

    Over 100 views, and nobody (with the exception of Reean) wants to donate a little time and blood, that might verywell end up saving somebody's life!?

    Another motorcyclist, someone's Mom.... Someone's child?!

    Wow. I guess I won't even ask if ya'll are organ donors.

    I’m an organ donor but can’t donate blood b/c I don’t weigh enough.

    And yes, I am an organ donar, and several time recepient of blood and tissue donations :P

    Sounds fine by me. My schedule is rather open, so why don't you and Stu coordinate, and let me know what looks good for the both of you. I'm down for whatever.

    Ditto. I was there in July. is it one year? or a year and half you half ? When they called me last and asked for a donation. They told me that a visitation to that area requires a 1.5 year wait for donation.

    Either way no donation from me.

    Well this has been an overwhelming success.

    Stew, if you still wanna go, PM me with the various "weird" times/days that suit your schedule.

    I'll make my appointment, based on my complex schedule, and I'll tell you what the details are. You can join if you wanna.

    I got your PM Stuart, so I called 'em and I'm all scheduled.

    It's going to be at the Lowry location, this coming Monday, the 21st.

    The appointment is at 1:40, and I told 'em that I may have somebody coming along. They said that you could just walk-in with, or if you wanted to call for the pre-screen you could do that too.

    The number is: 303-363-2300.

    See if they are taking donations on Thanksgiving Stuart. I can't give blood that late in the day on Tues. and still go to practice, but we don't have practice on Thursday.

    And I'm guessing you still can't do anything Wednesday/Monday, so maybe Thursday is our best bet.

    Anyway, if they are taking donations sometime Thursday, and you wanna do Thursday, book us. Just tell them that you're rescheduling me. (Brandon Muniz) If they need to give me a call to verify this, they have my number.

    No donations on thursday, I have a workout and body fat test at noon so I shouldn't be low on blood tuesday, you may be on your own for this round, but by the next time it comes around I will be graduated from college and more than willing to shed some blood
