So I see the announcement that the Blood Van will be here and we can all give blood (BTW, congrats to TGN, we donated 47 units today). So I signed up. BTW, I always get light headed after I give blood, does not matter how much, I always get light headed.
Things were going GREAT…. The blood was flowing from my veins, I had selected the “Hot Green” bandage to wear after it, and I was feeling awesome. Pumping the little rubber ball every 3-5 seconds as told to.
I get done, they pull the needle and then set me up. I sit there for about 30 seconds and then tell the guy I am getting light headed. He then calls in the reinforcements. A lady starts laying cold compresses on my neck and my forehead. I start seeing the tell tell signs. My vision starts to blur, I tell her I am going to pass out. She then starts asking me questions about how many kids I have, if I think she is good looking…. And then everything goes BLACK. And I enter dream land. I remember I dreamed, but can’t remember what it was about.
Anyway, three minutes later I wake up to find myself hearing someone in the distance saying “Mike… Mike….” Then I open my eyes and start responding. My vision, hearing, everything starts to return. But something is just not right. I can’t quite put my finger on it.
Then when I start coming around, I realize that my lap is warm, and I am sweating REALLY bad. Well to make a long story short. It was not sweat, and I had to make a trip home. I went to my boss told him what happened, and he sends me home to change my clothes.
Here are now some of the comments my Wife and co-workers are making.
My boss sends me the links to Depends and tells me that I should think about stocking up on them. Then Aimee calls me pee boy and starts reminding me every 30 minutes to go to the bathroom. There have even been talks about getting the video from the security camera. Maybe we will have a FUN Video Thursday.
OK, post your comments, make fun of me, and ridicule me. But just remember, there is
someone, somewhere that will need a pint of blood that I donated and was embarrassed for the rest of my life for giving.
BTW, I posted this so that Aimee, and the others would not put their version up until I had told WHAT REALLY HAPPENED.
I just wanted everyone to read what Aimee and Co-Workers have done….
From my Boss (or I should say my Grand-Boss, or Boss of my Boss)
I’m thinking these will work ok for you during the Day:
But at night, you’ll probably want these:
