caitlin_chan
fantasyecho , you kill me.  <3  These are all from today, in the same... twenty-ish minutes of conversation.  XDD


Caitlin says:
There are "speaches" in front of the library this week before our Take Back the Night March.
Jha - Nar! Nar! Nar! says:
are they any good?
Caitlin says:
I dunno, I've never had a speach.
Jha - Nar! Nar! Nar! says:
wait
Jha - Nar! Nar! Nar! says:
that wasnt a typo



Caitlin says:

I have to go to the school clinic to ask to be tested for haemachromatosis anyway.
Caitlin says:
(I think I spelt that right?  XD)
Jha - Nar! Nar! Nar! says:
eek
Jha - Nar! Nar! Nar! says:
(I have no idea XD)
Caitlin says:
(I did.  XD)
Caitlin says:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haemochromatosis
Caitlin says:
My Aunt Marion has it, Mum probably does (what with them being identical twins and it being genetic), so I need to be tested.
Jha - Nar! Nar! Nar! says:
....
Caitlin says:
(Oops, I didn't: haemochromotosis*)
Jha - Nar! Nar! Nar! says:
extra iron
Caitlin says:
Yep.
Caitlin says:
XD
Jha - Nar! Nar! Nar! says:
so
Caitlin says:
But more than just extra.
Caitlin says:
Like.
Jha - Nar! Nar! Nar! says:
does that mean you could end up being like Wolverine?
Caitlin says:
...No, I could have organ damage and die.
Caitlin says:
XD
Jha - Nar! Nar! Nar! says:
oh



Caitlin says:
O pos and O neg are the universal donor and universal recipient, but I can never remember which is which.
Jha - Nar! Nar! Nar! says:
O is universal donor. AB is universal recipient
Caitlin says:
Oops.
Caitlin says:
Well, I was close. XD
Caitlin says:
Both Os and both ABs?
Jha - Nar! Nar! Nar! says:
i'm not sure about that. but we never studied negs and pos in school.
Caitlin says:
Yeah.
Caitlin says:
Hmmmm....
Caitlin says:
O neg is the universal donor, and AB pos is the universal recipient.
Caitlin says:
Fear my Wiki-fu.  XD
Jha - Nar! Nar! Nar! says:
yay
Jha - Nar! Nar! Nar! says:
i couldnt find it on wikipedia.
Caitlin says:
I did!
Caitlin says:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O_negative#O.2C_O-
Jha - Nar! Nar! Nar! says:
what did you type??
Jha - Nar! Nar! Nar! says:
oh
Caitlin says:
Scroll down and there's a chart and such.
Caitlin says:
I'm A pos.
Caitlin says:
Funtimes.
Jha - Nar! Nar! Nar! says:
ah, there
Caitlin says:
Unfortunately, this means I have a hella common blood type, so my donations are less useful than some other people's.  XD
Jha - Nar! Nar! Nar! says:
poor A- and B-
Caitlin says:
Plus only other A pos people or AB pos people can have my blood without having a transfusion reaction.
Caitlin says:
Nasty things happen to people who get the wrong blood. :/
Caitlin says:
"Acute hemolytic reaction. This is a medical emergency, and can occur within minutes of the transfusion. It results from rapid destruction (hemolysis) of the donor red blood cells by host antibodies, usually related to ABO blood group incompatibility - the most severe of which often involves group A red cells being given to a patient with group O type blood[2]. The most common cause is clerical
Caitlin says:
error (i.e. the wrong unit of blood being given to the patient). The symptoms are fever and chills, sometimes with back pain and pink or red urine (hemoglobinuria). The major complication is that hemoglobin released by the destruction of red blood cells can cause acute renal failure."
Caitlin says:
Ohshit, kidneys!
Caitlin says:
^^;;
Jha - Nar! Nar! Nar! says:
...
Jha - Nar! Nar! Nar! says:
"Ohshit, kidneys!" should be a lolcat



Fear our insanity.

I can't give blood.
There isn't enough blood in me to give it away :(

It takes me forever to get bloodwork done because my blood is all trickletrickle coming out of my arm. (When I went Tuesday, the nurse had to squeeze my arm at the end just to fill the last vial...)

Holy crap. o.O Maybe you need some of my blood? XDD

I have O negative blood. Everybody looooves me!!!
'Cept anemia means I can't give blood this time! Or last time! And the time before that there was the mumps shot thingie.
