Other questions about "Blood"

Q: I had a blood sample taken at the hospital.
(私は病院で採血をしました) Does this sound natural?
A: It would sound more natural to say "I had a blood test done at the hospital" or "I had blood work done at the hospital"
Q: I donated blood yesterday. I had a cup of coffee after I gave blood. Does this sound natural?
A: This sentence is perfectly fine!

A prepositional phrase is never needed after a sentence like "I gave".

"I" is the subject, and "gave" is the predicate, so it is a complete sentence. "To her" is extra details you can add to the sentence.

However, while "I gave" is a complete sentence, it does not make much sense. A sentence like "I walked" or "I swam" makes sense because the action does not involve an object.

A sentence like "I thought" or "I made" does not make sense because the action involves an object.

"I thought about cats."
"I made breakfast."

A sentence like "I gave a birthday present" or "I traded my ring" does not make sense because the action requires another element.

"I gave a birthday present to her."
"I traded my ring for a necklace."

Sometimes, the original sentence can make sense using context clues.

"We all gave her something! I gave her a birthday present."
"There's a pawn shop for jewelry. I traded my ring."

A sentence like "I gave a handshake and a smile." makes sense because two objects can often help the reader figure out what the objects are being given to.

"I gave a birthday present and a ring." (given to a wife)
"I gave a treat and a pat on the head." (given to a dog)
"I gave a fork and a plate." (given to someone who is about to eat)

Q: Which one does ”I'm Chinese.” sounds like?
