First time for everything...

At least I think that's the first time I've ever been deferred as a blood donor. My blood pressure sounded high (130/90) and my pulse of 118 (!) disqualified me from giving today. The nurse said both could be a sign I'm coming down with something. (Could also be too little sleep, too much caffeine, or having just eaten lunch, I suppose.)

Temp was 97.9, of which I admit some skepticism. My normal is about 99.0, and if I'm coming down with something, I should be a hair higher, not low, right? At least my iron count was good. Little risk of that changing. :-)
