Trotted off to Canadian Blood Services today and left a pint of AB+ behind. Only took seven minutes to fill it. Go me! There was a young man there giving blood for the first time and all the nurses and volunteers were fawning all over him - partially because he was a newbie, partially because he was adorably cute. He was stoic, shy, polite and cute and then sadly, while sitting eating cookies and sipping watered down juice, he quietly turned the colour of recycled paper and looked around like a wounded puppy. Then nurses were awesome with him and before he knew it, he was lying on a gurney with compresses and ice on his neck and wrists and a little barf bag clutched in his little cold clammy hand looking all of about twelve. I hope this experience doesn't discourage him and he keeps giving the gift of life.
