Last of the IV wrist covers sent to good homes

The remaining IV covers never made it to the hospital in Chicago—I gave half of them to a kindergarden student outside of LA who has Hemophilia and must go to the hospital, complete with IV treatments, every time another child bumps into him or if he walks into something (a simple bump or bruise is life-threatening to him). He uses the covers to keep the IV setup safe when he gets home from the hospital.

Then it turned out his kindergarden teacher has an autoimmune disease that requires a similar setup —she's been cutting holes out of her husband's socks to make covers for her hand, and is grateful to have an upgrade with the beautiful knitted/crocheted covers y'all have made.

Thanks again for your care and generosity as you give your time for others. You are making a difference, and are bringing our worldwide community together, one stitch at a time.
