STORY : Lifeblood by Friedrich Dietz

Story title: Lifeblood
By Friedrich Diez

     An eight-year-old boy had just gotten over a serious illness, when his sister came down with the same sickness. The doctor knew that the only way to save her was to use the antibodies which had developed in the boy's blood. That would require a blood transfusion.
     So the doctor asked the little fellow if he would be willing to donate blood to his sister. The young
fellow hesitated, his eyes were filled with fear and shock. But then he pulled himself together and bravely said, "Yes, Doctor. My sister can have my blood."
     After the blood transfusion had been made, the little boy quietly asked the doctor, "How soon will I have to die now?"
