Steve, very amusing article. But I'm the public relations manager for
American Red Cross Blood Services, let me help you with a couple of things.
Another word for nurse-doctor who draws blood is a phlebotomist. Same number of
letters but much more accurate. The phlebotomist only took a pint of your
blood. You have 10 - 12 pints in your body so "most" of your blood was
not removed. You'll be fine. We had some pretty bandages donated just
recently by Nexcare, I'll send you one. In spite of these corrections,
thanks for the article. The demand for blood is constant. The American Red
Cross needs to collect 440 units (pints) every day to serve the 31 Utah
hospitals which we supply. And one final comment: Well done! You're a
hero! You donation will save a life.
