Monthly Blood Party: November

Apheresis Donor November (2007) Pin Blood Party Date: Novemeber 17th

My Appointment: 10:45 am

Other Participants:

This month's incentive:
I'll take people for food, before we go help Kevin move.

So because of that same awful scheduling, I had to travel all the way out to Riverview this time. Where the heck is THAT?!? The woman in Detroit who schedules my appointments sent the Riverview center's phone number along too so I could call them and get directions.

I got plenty early to go pick up P.M. at his college house in Detroit and then get to the center. I spent 10 - 15 minutes trying to wake and/or find him knocking and calling (on the phone). Finally I had to give up so I could make my appointment on time. Got there, no real problem.

The donation itself I don't remember having any issues with (though it has been two months). Despite the distance, there was still one nurse I knew from Livonia. *shakes head* Just odd.

I got my pin! I then worked to get to Kevin's new place as he was moving that day. I knew I wouldn't be able to carry anything to help, but I figured there might be something else I could do. Or at least just be there for moral support (heh). The only real concern I had was would I be able to get there before the donation hit me? I was supposed to have two people along with me this time, but one had to cancel due to work, and the other I mentioned above.

My other problem was finding a Big Boy to get my now traditional after donation yummy "meal" since I was in an area I'd never been in before. It took a few minutes, even with some guess of guidance from people at the donation center, but I managed to find one! And I managed to get back to a highway I knew would get me to some place I knew, then to Kevin's. It was nice seeing people. :)

I've got my Novemeber pin now :) The January Blood Party is scheduled for the 20th. Eventhough it's a Sunday, I always like company. Want to come? Let me know!
