( Taylor ). I unfortunately, do not have the blood type that she so desperately needs, but I figured that I was paying it forward in Taylor's name. I didn't realize that they timed how long it takes you to fill a bag? It took me a mere 4 Minutes and 40 Seconds! I told them that I was hydrated. ( Big Smile ) I even persuaded my husband Chad to donate for the first time. There was another woman that loved the idea of what we were doing & decided to donate as well. I closed out the donation day as the fastest donor ( ROFL). Marines, we are so competitive! Anyway, as I enter the countdown to the last 48 hours. I ask that if you can, drink LOTS of water. Log into http://www.redcrossblood.org They have a critical blood shortage especially for O Negative! Please find a site that is hosting a blood drive and go donate! Take your friends, ask people you know, take your family. Then go out to dinner to celebrate giving someone you don't even know a gift. You never know when might be the day that you may need to receive this simple, but precious gift. Depending on if there is a line or not & how well hydrated you are when you go in, you could be in & out with in 30 minutes. Just think... You could be the Miracle that someone is Praying for.
