Day 4: Treasured Item

Riley was wrapped in this blanket while we were in the hospital.  Honestly, I think she was only in it while her pictures were taken.  But this bit of material was on her, right next to her skin.  It absorbed some of her blood.... some of the fluids from her body.  It used to smell like her.  I used to sniff around on it looking for her scent.  It's gone now....  I can still see the dirty bits where she bled on it.  I clung to this blanket when we left her in the hospital and for months later it went everywhere with me.


  1. I love that you carried a bit of her with you, just to hold on to. (hug)
