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.

A Message from the Slacker
Okay so enough whining. Here is an update on the surgicals (I thought that sounded cooler than "those who had surgery recently)
Jack- Jack is back at school full time except for the 3 days a week that I take him out early for PT. Several people have said that they can really see a difference in his walking. PRAISE GOD! I have been nervous to say that because I am just a little more cautious with that. What Trent and I definitely feel like we have seen is that his knees are straighter when he walks, his step length is longer, and he is doing a better job of walking heel to toe. I am hopeful for more improvement over the next few weeks.
Ruthie- Well Sam sprayed her with a water hose which got her dressing wet so we have been on infection watch for a week. I am glad to say that we are now pretty much out of the infection window and doing well. This operation has been much more painful than the first one. Her Dr. believes this is because she is older and able to express herself better. I absolutely agree with the "express herself better" part. :)
Thanks for still checking in. I am going to figure out how to manage my time better so I can be a better blogger. :)
Last Monday morning, I was sitting in a Dallas hotel room with Ruthie (my 10-year old) watching TV. She chose an OLD Christmas cartoon tha...
