I made it through my three days on.
After work I went to give blood. Next time I give will be a gallon! I was able to give today, but JUST barely. My hemoglobin was 12.5 (exactly what I needed). Without taking the daily iron I most certainly would not be able to donate. My vitals were good — blood pressure 111/75, heart rate 51. It took 8 minutes to give the blood. I drank about 32 ounces of water during the donation time (really distracts me from having the needle inserted and that strange sensation when the blood is coming out!)
I left after signing my slip for my one free hour of vacation, receiving a coupon for a free car wash and vacuum, and eating my customary Fig Newtons (love!!)
I got home and crashed right into bed.
Dinner was so good — quesadillas (onion, green pepper, mushrooms and cheese).
Now I’m about to get in the shower and then watch some DWTS.
Then some popcorn and Criminal Minds…
A PERFECT night off 🙂
