Way back in 1993, I signed up to be a bone marrow donor. This morning I got an email saying I was a potential match for a 49 year old man. How cool is that? The lady called me this afternoon and asked a bunch of questions and I may not be able to donate because of all of the migraine medicines I'm on, but here's hoping that I will be able to help save someone's life. I'm still in the first stage and if my migraines don't get in the way, will have to give a cheek swab and if that matches will have to either donate bone marrow or stem cells via a 4-8 hour blood donation. She said I could bring a friend along to keep me company. Who wants to come and sit with me for 8 hours? I was going to ask if I could bring a sewing machine and sit and sew while donating blood. I wonder if they could hook the blood sucker to my left leg so I could sit up and sew instead of to my arm. I bet I would be the first person to ever try and do that while donating. I also bet if they let people quilt while donating blood, they would get more blood donors!
