Leak Damage and Blog Break

 Update: All is good to go! Surgery is on schedule for tomorrow, Tuesday, May 22, at 12:30. Have to be at hospital at 10:30 AM. Repairs at home will resume in a weeks time.
I am hoping to be home by Friday!
Ready to get  surgery and the rest all behind me!!!!
Thanks for all the wonderful wishes  and prayers!!
I appreciate you all!!

This is the entry and the closet. Pipe is in closet wall. Main water pipe from the pump to the house.
They took up carpet padding and the sub flooring . Wall in closet will go also. Pulled out insulation in walls and under house that was soaked.

Here is some of the drying blowers and dehumidifiers they set up.
 Here are the Serv Pro workers tearing out sewing studio floor including closet area. So almost half went that day. All will be ripped out this week. Contractor and crew will be here Thursday to begin.
This too went down to the plywood.

Don't know if you can see how much the wall is bowed out or not. That paneling soaked up a lot of water.

They set up more equipment in sewing studio.
Did right away took out some things but not all at that time.
Has all dried now. ServPro came got the equipment. Now all the repairs, replacements and cleaning left up to the repair contractor.

All my sewing studio and part of the living room is now hiding in this POD!
Spent Mother's Day with DH and son packing it all up!

No way will all be done by May 22nd! I am just going to 'let it go' nada worrying will do for me. One day at a time is all we can do.

Have had a possible problem develop that may move surgery date out further. Will know more at my GP Dr. appt tomorrow!
Ok now what is that saying about what does not kill ya will make ya stronger????? Just call me Mrs. Hulk!!!
I am going to take a blog break for a few weeks now. Just too much going on and none of it is fun stuff!
Hope to be able to at least read  some blogs after surgery!
So take care everyone!
Thanks for all the kudos!!

melt down

Yes....I had a melt down on Sunday morning! We had a flood in the house! A pipe in the entry way closet decided to leak...big time! MESS! Water soaked flooring, carpet soaked through to sub flooring , walls soaked though! Called insurance they had ServPro out here Monday. Tore up my house! Yes all this after been working like mad to get ready for home care after knee replacment surgery coming up here on 22nd! So melt down may have been an understatement!

Ripped up carpet, took out sub flooring and pad. All entry way and closet wood laminate floors gone, cut out dry wall in closet. Sewing studio backs up to that wall ! Yes tore up my new flooring and subfloor. Wall soaked as well! Had to move stuff out, not in the best fashion!

Have these huge dehumidifiers and heat blowers in both rooms, tubes and wires going up the hall to bathroom! Temp in living room yesterday was 87!

Just a mess! No idea how things will work out for repairing and my surgery! Still aways from dry with the readings they took yesterday and today. Did estimate on repairs work up today to send to insurance. Fella says  he will get right too it as soon as he gets go ahead from ServPro. Has to order flooring and such. If wall has to be replaced in studio will have to be paneling to match. Though that is a nice heavy one you do not see anymore. We just painted it!
He also said a storage pod will be delivered to store stuff in for the repairs to be made. So we went and bought some totes so I can pack up some of my things.
I am on my bitty Inspire lap top. As soon as I can get to PC in sewing studio will try to post some pics.

Off to very early appt at hospital in the morning for more tests! ugh! They are going to wear me out before they ever cut on me!

Sewing Machine Covers

This is one of my machine covers. Keeps the dust off the machine and protects it too.
If you do not have one and may have been thinking of making one check out Liz's post on her blog... Moments .
Liz is hosting a Sewing Room Sew Along and this month it is machine covers.
She has posted a lot of links to other blogs or sites that share how they made theirs.
Lots on inspiration!

I got crowned today.. twice! Yes the perm crowns came in finally!  Now one more appliance and procedure then my mouth  makeover ( what I call it)will be completed! I like my dentist but still hate going to the dentist! hahaha!

I gave in and put AC on. Hate too but was too stuffy in here when I got back home today!
Big fat cat Marmalade loves it! Crazy kitty gal!
I am hoping it is a temporary thing and can soon go back to lower temperatures again.

Another day off to big city for me tomorrow. Have my pre-op appt with my GP.
I also have to go by hospital Pharmacy to buy a kit.
It has some things in it to help me do 'normal' things after surgery.
I also need to buy some twin size sheets.
So will need a nap when I get back home !;-)
