***Please take a moment and read Amber's Story*** My son Sam was born a little after 3 A.M. on8/2/11 via cesarean. When I woke up, I thought I had been out for a couple of hours (in reality it was a couple of days). My husband was holding my hand andwas visibly upset. I asked “What’s wrong?”- thinking something happened to Sam. He told me I was in ICU. I was in shock, all I could do was stare at him until I passed out. I woke up manytimes; never knowing howmuch time had passed. Each time, my surroundings were different. Once, I woke up to see 3 doctors. A few times I woke up to a visitor. I was told there were so many people, the waiting room overflowed. The last time I woke up in the local hospital, my room was full of people. I was told I was going to hold Sam.It was the first time I heldhim, but I couldn’t feel becauseof the anesthesia and morphine. All I could do was look. I yelledout “Someone take him, I’m going to pass out!”, and I did. I was told later that they let me hold him because I wasn’t expected to survive, and a mother should be able to hold her child before she dies. My next memory was getting off of the helicopter at UAMS. I don’t know how they did it...there is 100 miles between Camden and Little Rock,butmy family, beat the helicopter there. They wereon the landing pad to see me, but I was confused. I didn’t know who they were, who I was, or where I was…it was a combination of things that caused this, but was temporary. They settled me infora procedure. The procedure, in the simplest terms; was injecting foam where I was bleeding from, filling in micro-bleeds. This was my 5th surgery in 3 or 4 days. Thankfully, it was the last one. Doctors and medical students were in and out of my room. I was somewhat of a mystery for them;there is no explanation for what happened, just one of those things. I moved to a normal room and was still there for a few days to be observed. In a week’s time, I had received five surgeries, rode in a helicopter, been in two hospitals, and received 45 pints of blood products. Forty-five pints! After I was home and physically able to get around, I needed to see how much that is for myself-so I filled water jugs for my own visual example. It comes out to 5.625 GALLONS. The average person has less than 2 gallons of blood in their entire body! Without blood donors, there is no doubt that I would not be here today. I wouldn’t be here to watch my son grow up or work with the amazing people at the Camden Police Department. ***I want to THANK Amber Wisinger so much for sharing her story. It's stories like hers that need to be heard. Donating blood is highly important! Please come out and donate Thursday!***

Please stop by and donate this Thursday, June 14th from 10-3. The units donated will stay local and every unit can save up to 3 lives. Please help out and donate on Thursday.
