As you RRs can tell, I’ve devoted this week to posts about transfusions and all things bloody.
The reason of course is that blood stores are at critically low levels this week, and as a mother of a vampire who drains these stores every three months, I have found myself in a strange situation where I am, by proxy, an advocate for the Blood Bank. Of course Nath and I give blood ourselves every three months, so we give back the amount that Coco withdraws. But still, not everyone has the luxury of being able to do that. And so there is a deficit.
We do what we can to spread the word: we give talks at Thank You functions, we appear in the Blood Bank magazine, we go in the paper whenever they ask us, acting as part of the propaganda machine that runs these kinds of things. And hopefully, now and again, we touch your hearts in such a way that you will be motivated enough to take an hour or so out of your day to donate 300mls of your most precious of fluids.
So here is another post from the vault, a more recent one, about Adaptation.
And remember, blood stores are critically low at present. If you can donate, please do.
