Dr. Erik Bostrom makes a baby blanket for each baby he helps deliver. It is personalized with the baby's name, birthday, height and weight. He was looking for a unique way to attract patients. Two years ago, he bought a used sewing machine, got a little help from his sister-in-law, and dove right in.

I was taught to sew over pins in home ec and have done it for over 40 years. Hard habit to break.

Wait--what??? A doctor wok has to offer free gifts to attract patients? Only in the Land Without Health Care.

Nice blankets, though.

How wonderful he thinks of his patients as real humans and not just cases. If I lived nearby, I'd ask how I could help.
