Transfusion Friday

Thank you to the person who parted with their blood and gave it to me. I didn’t want your blood but it turns out this time I needed it. Please don’t give me any nasties. I promise I’ll cherish it and use it wisely.

It’s a bit silly really isn’t it. I am ok with all these mental chemicals going into my veins but the idea of a blood transfusion scares me.

I mean it doesn’t really scare me so much… It does make me a little uneasy but it’s more just that last time they said I was close to needing a transfusion and I declined and managed to easily get my haemoglobin levels back up myself. I don’t want be to using a transfusion as a first line treatment. That blood can go to someone else.

But this time I tried and it’s not going up. I need the transfusion. Ok fine.

So thank you, whoever it was who shared some of their blood with me. I really do appreciate it.

I can guarantee that so far since it’s been going in, I have sung along to the following songs playing on the radio:

Billy Joel – My Life

Annie Lennox – No More I Love Yous

Seal – Kiss from a Rose

The Carpenters – Close to you

I hope the blood is happy with the songs, but if it is not please don’t blame me, blood – it’s just the radio. I promise to give you a good life resplendent in only good music. I welcome you with open… Veins I guess.

    Hi Jen, let me know if you need any more. But mine might not suit you. Too much Guinness and James on and it is B+ anyway . Just a bit rare . Hope the numbers go back up quickly. Love, John.


    1. Aah you just have to be different! Thankfully they found some to match with my very common 0+
      I’m sure I’ll be feeling better with some new blood to make friends with my blood! Even my blood wants to make friends!
      Hope you are keeping well – not long!


    1. Aah yes! Anyone who has lived in Britain (or maybe even visited) during the problem years isn’t allowed to give blood in Australia either!! I hope this blood doesn’t have it! I haven’t been immunised!!!
