It was quite the adventure since we took Jesse with us.
Our plan was for Kristen to go first then he would take Jesse then I would take my turn.
Well the volunteers would have none of it. They gladly took Jesse and played with him while both Kristen and I donated.
It was a great experience, took about an hour start to finish.
And today I feel just fine.
Here's a photo of the EXTRA bandage they put on both Kristen and myself (Kristens was white and blue) as a precaution since we would be lifting Jesse and you're not supposed to "lift" anything after donating.
Obviously I lifted
If you are healthy and able, please donate.
One of the volunteers had suggested I only donate a couple times a year (you can donate every 56 days if you want) since I'm more likely to be tired with a baby (she would be right)
While in the recovery area I heard an elderly gentleman said he's 2 donations away from having donated 100 times!!! That is so awesome :)
