She claimed she could figure out if blood samples were a match to Jose’s. I agree that this seems unrealistic to do under the circumstances, which is why it was so surprising that no one was curious as to how her blood testing actually worked.

If you like someone then one could risk their life for them.

Would you think twice if you had to save your lover?

I hope this situation does not arise. But if it may kill both of us, then I could search for an alternative.

The risks Jennifer had here weren’t life threatening. She ran the risk of being found out. So her situation is a bit different from something you’d run into in a more typical situation.

I would definitely donate blood in that position, but maybe not as much.

I guess that makes sense; donate enough to ensure Jose makes it to the ER without looking too suspicious.

True, but she had pretty advanced intelligence, so she could probably make an educated guess

I think that's difficult even for a professional. I am not from that field so can't say for sure.

I think it’d be pretty difficult, too. It’s hard to say how much blood loss occurred, let alone how much of a donation would keep Jose in the clear to reach the hospital.

She couldn't even have guessed how much max she could donate as there is no such maximum specific to average population. It varies with every individual. Some faint even with minimal blood donation.

Yes, some faint with even a small donation, but there is an average maximum. Adults have 5 to 6 liters of blood. Anyone between 18 and 60 years, can safely donate one unit of blood every three months.

Risky if she hadn't any symbiotes in her body. It is alright because she saved someone from dying.

I agree it wasn’t life threatening for her, but I was referring to whether or not it was too risky to her being “found out.”
