    that's what I'm thinking. Delta allows every 3 months. But if red cross has a perm center too, then I can go there and donate every three months, putting me on a 6 week donation cycle.

    Red Cross doesn't have a permenant donation center like Delta Blood. They have blood drives, so the locations will different time

    Donate Blood | Find a Local Blood Drive | American Red Cross

    this is a zip code locator to find the nearest drive near you

    Yea. I'm registered with them now. Every three months is ok the allowed amount
    On Monday I get blood drawn again to see where my rbc is.that's what I was wondering.
    How much will it lower per donation.

    it wasn't a blood donation. It was a phlebotomy. And the reason why they could do it 2 days apart was because they also gave me the equivalent in glucose solution IV. Basically they diluted my blood. Otherwise i think 2 pints is too much 2 days apart.
