I gave blood for the first time on Saturday.
Thankfully they let Ron stay and hold my hand.
They didn’t have a problem getting the needle in, which is good. That means they know what they are doing.
However, since I had to move my hand, it hurt. If I was still it didn’t hurt, but every time I had to move my hand it hurt. I have a 2×2 inch bruise on my arm from where they took blood. Very ugly. I’ve been wearing long sleeves. It’s a good thing it is winter.
My blood pressure was 104/74.
My pulse was 64.
My cholesterol was 155.
Except for the stupid allergy to all my favorite foods, epilepsy, and sleep apnea, I am extremely healthy.
