Double Red

I went to donate blood at the town blood drive on Thursday and was asked to do a double red cell donatation instead.
That was something I have not done before. I've given platelets before. This was simular. Just one needle in one arm though. They took out 2 pints, spun out the red cells and pumped the plasma, plus some saline to replace the red cells back in. The whole thing took about a half hour.
