Onto Medical Fronts...
The Red Cross alert came across my Desk yesterday. The High demand since Katrina has led to shortages....
They are desperatly short of Type O-, B-/+ and A+ (O- and A+ especially as they are the rarest Blood Types)
Thankfully I work in HealthCare, so as soon as the alert was recieved at work, our Site President schedulded the Mobile RC UNIT to come by the office today.
I am A+ so when the Blood-mobile pulled into work today, I gave again, I had JUST recieved my reminder letter in the mail last week, (They send me letters every 8 weeks like clockwork, I'm a regular donor,)
And... Yes, if you are Diabetic you *CAN* still donate. They can't use your whole blood, but they CAN use the plasma! Just as important.
They will always take ANY blood type you are, I urge you all to go donate please.
And since I'm on the subject of WORK....( Collapse )
