I had a birthday last week, ohh they just keep coming, but I received the below email which struck me as rather unusual. Are they happy I’m still alive and able to give blood or are they soliciting me to give more. One time when I was younger I gave blood at the Red Cross and the nurse told me to rest for a while on a couch. I said no I was fine and would get going. I got as far as the door when I did a face plant. Now I take a rest for a while.
