Call for Platelets Donor in KL

I just happened to pick this up from PPS pings and decide do help this guy out. His cousin needs platelets donor. Full details here:
http://sleepyhao.blogspot.com/2007/04/platelets-donor-needed-urgently.html

I have seen platelets and can tell you it is some no-coloured liquid, derived from our blood. So, all the strong, healthy, young men, do see if you can help? They will take your blood and that’s that.

I do not know the blogger nor he knows I posted this. So, call first to verify the validity? The phone number is on his blog.

While on this subject, dear friends, keep these blogger friends of mine in your thoughts and prayers, will you?

Buaya’s mom.

MG.

I am not providing the link ‘cos I am sure most of you know them already. If not, ask please. Buaya’s mom is diagnosed with early stage of cancer and MG recently experienced another bout of seizure. For MG, I understand your fears but hang in there. God will watch over your little ones and shield them from the trauma of witnessing your seizure.

While on the subject of cancer, two of my sons’ school mates have cancer. 14-15 years old. One of them has brain tumour and after a long stay at Mt Miriam for treatment, the tumor in the brain now goes into the spine. And the other boy has leukaemia. Very depressing world, we have, no?

  1. platelets donators are known as apheresis donor, used to be one …

    normal whole blood donor, u can donate 3 months once … but with apheresis donor, u can be donating once a week …

    but takes twice the time as long as normal donating …

    but to be calling out for donation of platelets like that? how bout the blood bank? close shop edy ar?

  2. Thanks a lot 5xmom! I’ld like to thank you on behalf of my friend and her cousin. Thanks a lot again!!

    Earl-ku, as far as i know, donors can only donate their platelets once every 3 weeks, not once a week like you said. It is different from blood donation. As we only need the platelets but not the other red and white cells. A machine will extract the platelets from your blood n bump the red n white cell back to your body.

    In the process of bumping the blood back to u, ur blood vessel hv to be big enough to have a good flow. That is why female normal canot donate platelets. Even small blood vessel male cannot donate too but mostly man will able to.

    The another thing is that goverment blood bank doesn’t supply blood to private hospital. As Platelets cell life is short, about 7 days. So platelets needed to be fresh, its not like blood donation, as the blood can be stored up for some time.

  3. will keep them in my prayers. btw, love the new look [i bet i must be TOO late for this la but i still must say] very nice leh!!! 🙂

  4. clement – Very thoughtful of you.

    Yvy – Yayaya, baru brandnew. Beware of cat basah.

    sleepyhao – Hope this helps. And thanks for the input cos I have been in the ICU and seen those platelets but didn’t know the procedure of it. Kena pam balik, dahsyat nyer. I think this is the liquid that flows out of our wounds when it dries. Hehehe, my kids injured themselves very often (bike accidents/skateboarding) and those icky, colourless liquid seep out.

    earl – Wuah, you so good heart wan.

  5. sleepyhao, i went the most frequent was 8 days apart from my last donation, i was an aspheric donor when i was in college, i know what am i talking here … coz i used to be an aspheric donor …

    aunty, me very kind wan leh …

  6. Yvy: Thanks a lot

    clement: You can Pos Laju the platelets. Ok, that’s just a joke. Thanks for your concern!

    Lilian: It helps a lot. Thanks again! Platelets is the cell that clot our blood when bleeding. 🙂

    earl-ku: That’s what I heard from my friend. Thanks for the opinion!

    Eh, how come like I’m the one that own this blog ar? Answering everyone’s comment, lol. Lilian, sorry if there’s any incovenience caused. Hehe.

  7. not only it helps to clot blood, it contains a variety of antiseptic properties which helps to fend of an infection … its not really a cell la … but its an agent which triggers a chain of chemical reaction and causes fibrin, which then forms long thread(nets) and tangle up red blood cells tooform a clot or later on form scabs …
