That’s right, this weeks renter is A Pile of Dog Bones. I’ve been reading his site for the last few months as the posts are always interesting, entertaining and humorous. He occasionally talks about his work and his co-workers, creates posts about what other people are writing about on their sites- with insightful commentary, and tells tales about his interesting social life. The people in his life have been come regular characters on his site that you’ll want to hear more about.
In NYC watchdogs sticky post he talks about the child of a fellow paramedic. The child, Liam, is suffering from a rare disorder that causes him to be anemic, meaning that he needs regular transfusions of blood to stay alive. He talks about a Charity Blood drive being held in the child’s name on Saturday April 29th at the New York City Blood Center. If you happen to be in the area you should drop by and give some blood. You could help keep Liam or another person in need alive.
Where ever you are please consider donating blood at a local blood center. It’s amazing how much blood we use each day in the Emergency department. At any given time there are at least 5 people being transfused. The most frequent reason for a blood transfusion in our department is chronic or acute anemia due to a number of diseases, but even a severe nose bleed can cause you to loose enough blood that you need a transfusion. You never know when you might need a transfusion yourself. Please donate.
Visit Pile of Dog Bones and see for yourself how varied and interesting his site is, and tell him that Tricia sent you.
