Blood Donation

On a more entertaining note...I gave blood on Friday. I've always been told I'm not the best vein candidate around, but it takes talent to give someone a bruse like this from an attempted blood donation! I thought I was going to come off the table when they stripped the tubing right next to the needle to see if the vein was really blown. That hurts like I never would have imagined! I ended up donating out of the other arm...and have no bruise!

  1. I give on a regular basis, and I have pipes for veins. But there was one phlebotomist that managed to blow one of my veins, must have nicked the side of it or something. I had a bruise for 2 weeks.
