Since John needs my blood type I called Amerimed to ask them how to donate. They said donations are handled through San Javiar Hospital, phone number 293-1500. I called San Javiar and this is what the lab told me regarding donating blood for John (or anyone, for that matter):

Must be between 18 and 65 years of age
Must not have had alcohol for a couple of days before donating
No medications can be taken 5 days before donating
Must be at least 110 pounds
Must fast 4-8 hours before donating
Cannot be pregnant
No tattoos within the past 5 years
No piercings

For more information, or to donate, call Lori at Escondidos at 322-183-6696sampati

Unfortunately, I can't go 5 days w/o my blood pressure meds. All I can do is hope for the best.

You don't have to be type A+ to donate for him, just give them his name and they will credit his account for one pint.
