I haven't gotten far enough along to set up an traditions yet. My appointments are always at 2pm, too late for lunch and too early for supper, but I suppose I need to figure something to do to note the occasion.
I was an 8 year blood donor, every 56 days like clockwork, until my biopsy. I haven't donated since and was wondering what the limits were for being able to do so after surgery and a "clean" test. Guess I need to call the center and find out. Thanks for the reminder.
