Donate Blood - Save a Life
I want to donate blood for a long time but I don't know where to go.But today I got an Oppurtunity to donate blood.Today morning I got a call from "Cross Blood Foundation" told that One patient in GH need my Blood group B-ve.
At first I was surprised that how they got my mobile number.After a little hesitation I agreed and get ready for that.Me and my friend went to GH.Wow GH is like a Star hotel.There the blood bank is in Groung Floor of 1st building(Ward No 204).There I met the Patient's wife.She told me that her husbund is undergoing an Openheart surgery.
After that one person came to me and enqire about lot of things.
1.Do u have Diabeties?
2.Are u affected by Jaundies or Typhid in the past 1 year?
3.Undergoing any treatment?
4.Consume any Alcohol in past 24 hrs?
5.Taken any Antibiotics yesterday?
6.Any treatment for tooth?( I don't know what is the relation for Bllod and teeth)
7.It's ur first time or previously donated?
Some thing like this and they checked my weight.Iam 60 kg.Eligiblity is 45kg and 18 years of Age.Then he sent me to the room.Another procedure is there.They took my blood sample and noted my Hemoglobin content in the sheet given and then they checked my BP too.
Then at last I laid down and they inject a needle to my Vein.1 bag(300ml) full of Blood taken in another 15 mins.They gave me a Cooldrink and Good Day packet.When I came out the Patient's wife Thanked me very much.That was a very good feeling.I consoled her and said all the very best for the surgery and left out.
Iam very happy now and it was a very nice experience.
