I agree. I know she was acting fast, but in her situation at the time, it should have been more important to think everything through.

It is too risky for her to donate three pints, it is too much
Anyone knows how much is the maximum a person can donate at a time and still be away from health risk?

Typically, donations are only 1 pint, and you can only donate blood again after a certain amount of time. If you were to lose 3 or 4 pints of blood, you would more than likely require a blood transfusion. Jennifer drew 3 pints, which would have been harmful to a regular person, possibly resulting in them needing a transfusion themselves.

Jennifer and Jose came from two different time periods. Jose was at a risk of the repercussion of that blood in him and Jennifer was at risk of giving out such a big amount of blood which even resulted in the weakness.

I also found it odd that nobody ever asked her to show them exactly how she did the test. Being that it's a group of scientists and research students, I would think that's something they would want to know just for curiosity's sake.
Exactly as what you have said, for emergency crisis, Jennifer is right but take the risk also for herself. Well, she always taught that her symbiotes will heal her.

I honor her decision to save him. I do think it was very risky because both of them were in danger of dying at that point. If I were in her shoes, I would do the same thing. I'm glad everything worked out for them.

She cannot make medical examinations that the matter is that the blood of Jennifer was not analysed and it is possible that the book go through.
