Hi Linda
You had said you think you may have (black)mold this should be checked out, as black mold is a biohazard and may be the cause of your loved ones' bad turn. The fact that the removal of the insulation and the sudden health problem are so closely related you also may want to stay away. Test the house.
This is not something that a nurse could tell you off-hand, and could effect you too! You may need a lawyer.

My prayers go out with this reply

It seems as if there is too much of a coincidence in the sudden swing towards decreased health and the current mold removal.

Remove your mother from the premises, now.

Nurses are not up to date on medical related causes. They are just people too. Is she diligent on her research regarding the statement she made to you and would accept any liabilities? Certainly not.

My condolences to your mothers health problems and the exasperation going on with the current remediation. It sounds as if there current work has absolutely aggravated an already poor health situation.

For what it counts, our prayers are with you and your family.

Hey Guys,

I just received this following e-mail, which has been edited for brevity, from LindaBerrien. She still could use advice after her recent loss.

Linda, I am sure I speak for all of the compassionate and concerned members who have taken time to reply to you so far, that we are all truly sorry for your loss and in no way should you feel responsible because you were taking care of your home responsibilities.

As before, our prayers remain with you and your memories of your Mother.



From: LindaBerrien
Sorry I have not been in touch but my Mom passed away on the May 30.

Here is the roofers proposal,
Remove about 364 squares of shingles
Remove and replace 45 sheets of plywood on roof.
resheet with 1/2" OSB
Connect plywood with metal clips.
Shingles - Board chooses color etc
Install Sure Vent Ridge System
Refelt roof with 15 lb roofing felt
Reflash roof with 29 grade flashing
clean up.
Almost $9,000

Now that's for the whole roof. Actually the front roof is absolutely
fine. No signs of leaking at all, no warped sheathing, no long nails
protruding. I'm going to try to get them to do just the back half of
the roof. They said before that their insurance company won't
insure half a rood. But I'm going to try again.
