Since our beloved friends came over and ripped out all that moldy drywall, Abby has been stronger and "weller" than she has been in a very long time. No fevers, no E.R. trips... outclimbing us all in the mountains of Colorado.
I finished painting, caulking and mounting hardware today. We went from a 30 year old, ugly baby blue moldy bathroom to a beautiful new bath that was more than we would have dared to hope for. A new tub, new heater/vent, shower and sink hardware, drywall, paint, counter top, cabinet faces, linen cabinet, toilet and CERAMIC TILE (which was a THRILL for us… our first tile!).
We are so blessed!!! And the really good news is: Abby hasn’t had a fever or lung problems since we ripped out the mold. So it would appear that really was the problem as we suspected. I haven't been sick since then either so I have the same hope that my frequent respiratory illnesses will cease.
Thank you SO much to all our wonderful friends, family and Christian brethren who were involved in the project. We have the most wonderful and caring friends; far better than we deserve. Special thanks to Scottie and Frank, though it’s hard to single anyone out because so many kind and generous people helped (many we don’t know about).
Special thanks to the Bauman’s who kicked the whole thing off by discovering the mold problem in the first place. I hope all who pitched in will get a lot of joy in knowing that Abby is feeling stronger and better than she has in a LONG time. If you don't believe me, check out the past week’s blog posts for all the mountain climbing and fun Abby had in Colorado.
