Moving on

John C. Staley

Recommended Posts


Well folks it's time for me to follow in the foot steps of the famous Bob Currie and move on to the next phase of my life.

On December 10th I will be ending my career in Blood Banking. I am semi-retiring to a small town in Wyoming to work in a clinic that does moderately complex and waived testing only. I will be trying to remember things I have not even thought of in 25+ years.

I will continue to haunt these page occasionally in the future but my imput will be based on historical information and not current real time.

Cliff, thanks for putting together such a terrific site for blood bankers to get together and learn from each other. I finally exceeded your number of posts so it's time to move on.

John, you know what they say about keeping those brain cells in shape! :D Flex those dudes, now, trying to remember all that stuff! :strong:

Best of luck to you and remember to stay in touch. I do occasionally make it out your way (my family is in Denver). Test me! Do I know the small WY town to which you're retiring? I lived in CO for 30 years.

Good luck in retirement, and don't forget about those of us who have to work more years than we've been alive to even sniff retirement:cries:

And don't forget about the optomistic blood banker's outlook on life: B Positive

I have enjoyed your posts and have appreciated you sharing your experiences/opinions/advice and your humor on this forum.

Best of luck with your semi-retirement. Hopefully you will occassionally be just a teensy bit bored and will visit Blood Bank Talk often.

As one rapidly approaching retirement as well, I wish you the best ...

Thanks for passing on some of your wit and wisdom to us Blood Bankers. I hope "artificial blood" hits the market before our knowledge disappears -- I see few new MT's interested in spending their careers hunched over a viewer shaking tubes like we did.
