Bad idea: Severe sepsis is extremely hard on your body. The American Red Cross, I believe would not allow you to give blood under these circumstances. I would wait for awhile and give your body a chance to recover. If you still want to donate blood in 2 months then go ahead. the ARC wants healthy blood in order to help other patients get better.
