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…
