Donating & Administrating

If you may recall that one of my goals was to donate blood at least once a year?

Well, at work I have a patient that requires 3 units, and I have to administer the units. She is even O rh+ like me.

I was just thinking that of the whole chain of blood donation I participate in two of the chain: donation and administration. As an RN I have only to participate in the collection of the blood before that chain is complete. And then I got to thinking that my patient could, in fact, be getting MY blood.

This moment felt more profound than I could make it sound.
