    I forget at the present moment, but can children have a completely different blood type than their (biological) parents who in turn have the same blood type?

    I fainted when I gave blood…like a real man. (There’s no way to macho that up.)

    I wish I could still donate. Unfortunately a blood relative died of CJD, so I’m barred unless they figure out whether or not it can be passed that way in my lifetime.

    I have O- and give blood often. I recently passed the 13 gallon mark. But since then I have had a melanoma removed so I will be off the list for 12 months.

    There is evidence that bloodletting is good for you (in moderation, of course). It “exercises” the system.

    Women have a built-in mechanism for this. Men, obviously don’t, so giving blood is something you should consider doing for your health.

    Alas, my blood donating days are over. I am on a blood thinner.

    They kicked me off 20 years ago for fears of mad cow. They only allowed me back last year. My doctor thought it was a colossal waste.

    I hate needles. I will do anything to avoid them. But:

    Without blood donors, My youngest would not have lived past 20.

    But then, without blood donors, he would never have been born, as I would not have lived past 19.

    So every 8 weeks, I close my eyes, turn my head, and deal with it. I urge all to do the same.

    Way to go Roger! And all the others here who donate. My wife & I have been donating every 8 weeks for 45+ years and hope to be able to continue for the foreseeable future.

    It’s an unfortunate fact that a significant amount of that donated blood ended up going to waste, since victims of the 9/11 attack didn’t exactly need it (almost all of them were killed instantly in the place crashes or the collapsing buildings, and most of the survivors didn’t need blood) so all of the blood banks filled up with donations from well meaning people (and a few virtue signallers) and 3 months later when it expired it had to be thrown away.

    I’m scheduled to donate tomorrow. I do what they call power red, counts as 2 pints, so I can only give every 16 weeks. They like getting the extra red blood cells, and I only have to go 3 times a year. Not sure how much I’ve donated, used to do it quite regularly, then is stopped because I mistakenly thought my medications made me ineligible. When I found out otherwise, I started doing it again.

    My hubby donated blood longer then I knew of him, then he got older with heart issues and medication that not work with donating blood. Then 11 years later had AFib, several days in hospital, he got sick and heart went back to normal rhythm, medication used was stopped, now his body is disabled still cannot donate.

    I donated regularly until Afib and blood pressure medicines made me ineligible…
