9th Blood Donation (3rd July 2009)

Same place as always, in Farnborough. Bright, sunny and warm today, so only used my jumper to cover a bit of cold frame my right elbow was resting now.

The nurse who was assigned to me was the trainee who deftly extracted my needle at my 8th blood donation. Apparently she passed all her tests and has now attended to over 200 donors! She put it well with this comment: “Amazing what can happen in 4 months.”

Had the jolly man at the little interview thing where they go through the health questionairre, which I’d filled out before arriving. Mentioned my visit to France 2008. He picked up on my correct pronounciation of year numbers, saying “twenty-oh-eight” for last year.
