That's how many fleece blankets we made, or were donated, to give to Children's Hospital in Ellie's memory. Forty-five! That doesn't include the 10 small fleece baby blankets, 8 regular baby blankets, 20 flannel baby blankets, and a couple large bedding blankets. We are holding onto some of the more adult blankets for the PICU comfort kits and the baby blankets for memory boxes and death care kits.
While I hate, I mean HATE, more than anything, that this is where my life has lead me, I love that Ellie is doing something that just might make someone smile. Because if there was one thing that Ellie was really good at, it was making people smile.
