Final Update: Irma
Monday, September 18, 2017
I am SOOO very grateful! As I posted last night, power is back on at my house and Lily and I were thrilled to sleep in a cool air conditioned house. There is no substantial damage to my home...no flooding, broken windows or roof damage. A couple of trees have big limbs broken and hanging and of course the fence is in a gazillion pieces. When I think of what could have happened, and what did happen to so many others both in Irma and Harvey and so many other catastrophes... I know how truly blessed I am. It was uncomfortable and inconvenient...but we made it through and I am back at work today.
Lily is still on her meds for the respiratory infection and I'm hoping that clears up shortly. She seems ok, other than her periodic sneezing fits. Her eye has cleared up and she's eating and drinking. She seems to understand that things are back to normal...mostly, and she seems happy.
The pastor and another church member came by last night and looked at the trees and fence that need work. They are coming back today to cut one tree down and prune the broken branches from the others. They are going to brace up whatever is left up from the fence. For now, that is all I need!
The World Rowing Championships are down here taking up all the hotel rooms available. I think the poor people that are still displaced from Irma, should take precedence...oh well, I suppose life just goes on.
Again, Thank you all for your care, concern and encouragement. It meant more to me than you can know!
OK, lots of work to catch up on. Please continue to keep all those affected by Irma and Harvey, in your prayers and thoughts. Many have much more cleanup and re-building of lives going forward.
Big hugs to each of you - I hope to be back to reading your status' and writing to each of you soon!
Nancy & Lily
