    The American Medical Association researchers have made a remarkable discovery.

    It seems that some patients needing blood transfusions may benefit from receiving chicken blood rather than human blood.

    It tends to make the men cocky and the women lay better.

    Just thought you'd like to know.

    Giving Blood

    Unknown Author
    Many years ago, when I worked as a volunteer at Stanford Hospital, I
    got to know a little girl named Liza who was suffering from a disease and
    needed a blood transfusion from her five-year-old brother. He had miraculously
    survived the same disease and had developed the antibodies needed to
    combat the illness.

    The doctor explained the situation to her little brother, and asked
    the boy if he would be willing to give his blood to his sister. I saw
    him hesitate for only a moment before taking a deep breath and
    saying, "Yes, I'll do it if it will save Liza."

    As the transfusion progressed, he lay in bed next to his sister and
    smiled, as we all did, seeing the color returning to her cheeks. Then his
    face grew pale and his smile faded. He looked up at the doctor
    and asked with a trembling voice, "Will I start to die right away?"

    Being young, the boy had misunderstood the doctor; he thought
    he was going to have to give her all his blood.
