Dad's blood drive
If you didn't catch WWNY news last night and see this little blurb about it, Dad's blood drive was yesterday, the turn out seemed pretty good. They were keeping track of how many people came specifically for Dad, so i'm hoping to get that number today. My mom was able to give blood, she didn't think she could because of her Lupus, but they said no problem. I tried to give blood but couldn't, maybe next time. My aunt (who's 80) and her 2 daughters came all the way from Massena to give, unfortunately only 1 of the daughters could give, though they all tried. I was kinda surprised at all the "no no's" for giving blood, i mean i knew a few obvious things would prevent you, i don't remember all this stuff from last time i did it, but that was like 11 years ago. Anyway, i thought it was nice they put a little piece on the news about it, just wish they'd done something like the day before to help boost the attendance even more. Dad was extremely pleased to see so many people really cared enough to come out and give blood in his honor.
