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.

Positive, Cute, Relief, and Still Praying

Positive- Ruthie had about an hour today where she perked up and interacted with her daddy. This is good because it means when her symptoms are controlled that she is ok. Looking for more of this tomorrow.

Cute- My girl loves shoes. Twice today when her fever was high and she didn't feel well, she wanted to hold one of her shoes to comfort her- like it was a stuffed animal. I moved it when the nurse came in, because I didn't want to have to explain why my daughter had her arm around a shoe.

Relief- One of her lab values (alkaline phosphatase) is really high at 900 and we were told that this indicated possible bone cancer if all else couldn't be ruled out. I talked to her surgeon's office today and they said that this was normal with the surgery she had and not to be alarmed at all. This was a huge relief.

Still Praying- We are on day 3 of 105 degree temps. I am praying that we turn a corner real soon.
