The wait was longer than the actual giving of blood. Because I didn't have an appointment they had to fit me in. The actual giving of blood took exactly 8 minutes. I was offered a bowl of cookies and/or juice. I decided that an orange juice would be quite enough.
I did treat myself to some hot and sour soup on my way home. I hear it's quite good for blood donating rehabilitation.
While I was there I made my donation to the Haiti Relief Fund. There were quite a few people donating as a result of seeing the conditions in Haiti and donating funds too. That made me quite happy.
