Default Re: blood donations after cruising FYI

I mentioned that we were going on a cruise in December when I was donating platlets a few weeks back and they told me that I would deferred for one year even if I stayed on the ship while in port. They said it was silly for tourists but Belize is in a Malaria zone. O well I guess the Blood Institute will have to wait a year for my help. You would think that they could have some type of screening for malaria. Not going to stop me cruising either! Gotta Cruise!!! It's in my blood! lol You would think they could see that when they screen my blood.
