This last weekend has once again been an unfortunate crazy one. It first started Friday evening, we got a call from Lance's mom telling us that cousin Laine was bucked off a horse and was flown to UMC in Tucson. He had been knocked unconscious and had yet to wake up. We were very worried but figured he would wake by morning and everything would be fine. Saturday morning, he still hadn't woken up and had significant damage to his brain. We quickly found some families to watch the boys (thank you Wolfington's & James') and headed for Tucson. We visited with PJ, Cammie & Family and then PJ took us back to see Laine. You're never prepared to see someone you love in that kind of condition. I'm so glad Lance was able to see his cousin...seeing as we didn't know what the future would hold. Lot of prayers were said and yesterday he opened his eyes a couple of times. So we are all very hopeful. When we got home we stayed busy and then went to bed.
Sunday morning we smelled something very stinky, like a mildew smell. I went down to investigate right before we left for church and felt the damp carpet. I kind of freaked out & said we would take care of it when we got home. After church Lance had some meetings so I went down to the basement to find the problem. It was much worse than expected. The basement had flooded and all of things that were ready to be packed to move (in a month) were now wet. I brought all of our things upstairs and called our landlord.
She called he insurance & they came out the next morning. Service Master pulled the carpet from the main room and put fans on it. It then began to rain heavy & started flooding the basement again. At this point Service Master told us that since it was a flood rather than just a leak that they wouldn't cover it. So lance sent them away and called some of his employees & some YM from our old ward. We had to move all of our landlord's things from the 2 basement rooms to the upstairs. It was quite a crazy day that I never want to relive. Lance got a contractor over to look at the problem and they were here this morning digging all of the dirt away from the house and will be resealing the concrete.
