My brave man

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!

Here he is showing off his badge of courage. Don't you just love his shirt? It says "Dare to be Rare".

Bless his heart!!  That must have been hard to watch him go through, with all the trouble they had getting the blood drawn.   He did a great job.  Cool shirt!

It was. He hid his face through most of it, but at one point he had picked up his head and he had tears streaming down his face. I broke my heart to see that and I almost started to cry, but before I lost it I thought about his courage and figured I'd better show some too. :)

Cool shirt. I have been told i have very thin veins. So i also have a major problem with nurse taking any blood.  When i was little i kicked a nurse. But she stuck me 5 times.  Im older now and i still cry when they cant find the veins.
