As I sit there on the bed watching my blood flow through the tube, I wonder
"will they throw away my blood because I am slightly sick?"
More importantly, could I get some one sick from my blood (I'm talking cold not some bad disease - you sicko!)?"
And finally most importantly, "Can I get sick from someone giving me blood (in case I need a blood transfusion)?"
I am almost certain that question 2&3 are no. But does that mean that 1 is true? Or does the cold virus not hang out in the blood?
Does anyone out there know how they filter the blood?
