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.

We Turned that Corner

Ruthie had a pretty good night. She hasn't had a fever spike since yesterday evening so we are encouraged. The Shingles is drying up and her lungs are sounding better too. Also they ruled out antibiotic resistant staph so any staph she may have is treatable. RSV is still what it is and they said she will struggle with that for weeks.

Another day of IV antibiotics and then if she doesn't have a fever spike, they are going to release us to drive home (we are 5 hours from home right now) and follow up with her pediatrician.

Looking good. Thanks for praying

Oh and a little nervous about driving home since she is still vomiting. That could be really memorable.

Praise the Lord!! This is really good news.

We will continue lifting Ruthie up in prayer... our God is above any 'diagnosis' and Ruthie does not need to suffer from the RSV affects for weeks on end... by Jesus' stripes, she WAS healed!! AMEN! Praying for "HEALTHY" non-puking travels back home for you.

Big Hugs to you and RUTHIE!!!

love, Tanya

I have been thinking a lot lately about what it looks like to pursue healthy relationships.  Like what if every relationship I was in could...
