D agreed to donate blood to SimonsVIP to be frozen and stored for some future time when they have more technology to study it better. It was rough. He has a major needle phobia and tiny hidden veins. It took over an hour and I had to lie on him to hold him down. She had to take it out of his foot and needed to start four different lines to get enough. Even though he was crying hysterically, he kept saying "Be brave...be brave.." and wanted to give his blood. We went for ice cream afterwards and then his new shirt came in the mail, perfect timing!
