When it rains, it floods.

Our apartment flooded today.


True story. This calm Sunday morning, our neighbor’s hot water tank exploded and they filled up with inches of water in their apartment (yikes!). Because our bedroom shares a wall with them, our bedroom is also flooded. Two weeks after our child got diagnosed with cancer. Ugh.

Our mattress and storage items and many of my clothes are soaked, including some family heirlooms. Some are damaged. I’m sick to my stomach.

We have renter’s insurance, which is great to replace some items. But, the real kicker is that we will have to move. They need to replace the carpet–obviously. But, our oncologist told us that replacing the carpet will uproot so many spores that it will compromise Sevi’s immune system. Since she is already so weak, the carpet replacement will make her sick.

We are staying in a hotel tonight (and maybe tomorrow), and working furiously with the apartment complex to see if they have an empty apartment we can move in to. We may have to move to a completely different apartment building. We’re trying to make the hotel stay a “vacation” for the girls, but it’s just so stressful….

When it rains, it pours…


How You Can Help

Can anyone spare some time to do research to find a good, affordable moving company in Denver? If so, say yes in the comment box.

Also, is anyone in the Denver area a realtor who would be willing to donate time ASAP to help us find a new place?

    I’m happy to research moving companies, I’ve used a few in the area before. I’m so sorry to hear about this guys. It’s one thing after another and it breaks my heart. I’m flying back to Austin tomorrow morning and will do what I can.

      Hi Braden, Eva here. That would be so helpful–thank you! I’ve heard good things about Denver Small Moves.
      Once you’re narrowed it down to your two best options, will you send to Brittany and Patrick’s emails please? Find them in th contact info section of the blog if you don’t have it.
