Success!

All that iron and positive good-vein thoughts did the trick. I was at 39% (You need 38%. I am so AP Iron right now.) which wasn't enough to do the magical blood donation where they can use it that day but enough to let me donate whole blood. It took me 16 and a half minutes to fill the bag and I was a little woozy afterwards but it was a success. Let's go out for ice cream to celebrate!

Congratulations! You make me proud! The recipient of that hard earned blood will be sooooo grateful. Thanks for giving it another shot.

Good job, Iron Girl. I'm really glad they didn't cause a clot or dig around in your arm too much. And isn't your blood type the magic golden kind that works for everyone? Ah, the world is a better place now.

My real concern is...what kind of cookies did you get afterward?

I'd like to echo Laura's comment. I've yet to see oreos at a blood drive, but I was really holding out hope on your behalf.
