Second time around,,,,flooded floor,,,,Happy Birthday to my husband Edward...

Happy Birthday to Edward today...he's a wonderful, unselfish husband and I'm blessed to have spent 48 years as his wife...

Last night our den floor was flooded for the second time since Saturday....we have had 14 inches of rain. Another system is suppose to come through on Sunday.

My brother and sister-in-law moved back from Murfreesboro, TN on Monday and he was admitted to the hospital yesterday, Thursday, with Congestive Heart Failure. I had spent the day with him at the hospital and had been home a short while when the water began coming in. Edward had bought a wet and dry shop vac so he used it and I started the towel brigade. Chad and Amy came and helped...when finally the rain slowed and everything seemed to be over I was moving the vac ( full of water)...the top wasn't secured, it tipped over and water was once again everywhere...so out came more towels....

The piano and other pieces of furniture are in the middle of the den...one bedroom ceiling has some damage...but it could be worse...

Betty,

I am so sorry that this has happened. Water damage is no fun. It sounds like our plumbing fiasco that has been going on since January. We finally found the root of all the problems...the pipe is broken in the foundation. They are coming to fix it Tuesday, weather permitting.

Praying for you and Edward, as well as your brother. Happy belated Birthday to Edward.
Blessings,
Mary

Hi, Betty, it's been ages since I stopped by (so sorry, just not enough time anymore to visit blogworld). I hate to hear about your flooding problem & hope it gets resolved. We have had a terrible amount of rain this year. Blessings to you and your family this Easter!
