If you have visited here before, you can probably see that I have changed the name of the blog again. I started blogging at 4URuthie to tell the story of our journey to adopt our 1st daughter. I changed it to Mountains for Maggie when we were praying for God to move mountains on behalf of our 2nd daughter. Well now it is no longer just Ruthie’s or Maggie’s stories. It is now our family's story, and the stories of those we share life with, as we Conquer Mountains together. Both ConqueringMountains.net and 4URuthie.blogspot will lead here.

The Big Reveal

Ruthie got her cast off today and other than looking a little well post-surgical, it looks good. She now has a splint to wear for the next 4-6 weeks. Here are some before and after pics.

Before her resting position was flexed and she was not able to actively extend (bring her wrist back)

Now her resting position will be extended and she will be able to flex (bend her wrist). They also brought her thumb out. The rest will clean up with a few baths.
