The Immortal Gene by Jonas Saul is good – so far at least and a LIFE update.

I’m scheduled to post about The Immortal Gene today for a TLC tour so here I am providing you with half review and half life update.

I’m over half way done with the book and really like it. The story is good, even if the bad guy really sickened me last night when I was reading before bed.  It runs along two main storylines, Jake the detective and Jeffery the serial killer.  There’s a mysterious shadowy group that has something to do with why Jake was in a coma for two years and why he now appears to be something more than a man.  I like the writing and the story and look forward to finishing and telling you more, hopefully next week.

Now for the life update.  We’re going through some major house issues.  What started with a question from Gage’s doctor, “Have you checked your house for mold?” has led us to a house in chaos. Without boring you with every last detail, yes we did, mainly in our master bedroom and Gage’s toy room and it’s been going on for years and years because of the faulty design of the original roof (1984).  You could not see this mold.  Starting in February I started doing some detective work that led me to remove all wallpaper where we found what looked like mold behind outside wall.  Blah Blah Blah and that corner now looks like this IMG_3724 No walls, ripping out flooring and subfloor from both rooms today.

This is what the foyer and living room underneath that looked like yesterday IMG_3722 And because the walls went together and our house was due we decided to renovate the whole outside of the house, removing the stucco board and replacing with cement boarding, but looking for rot and mold along  the way.  This is my current view IMG_3731

Everything on the top floor is being thrown or has been thrown out.  Seriously.  I’m currently in the middle of cleaning what I can on the first floor and putting it in a pod.  The pod and dumpster compete for space in our driveway.

When all the dust and mold has settled I’ll post about what mold you can’t even see can do to your health.  Til then keep us in your prayers.

    Oh man! I’m so sorry. I have a friend that had black mold growing in their house for years before they found out and have been dealing with that fallout for a couple of years now. Their health has improved but it’s been an ordeal. So I’m so sorry that you and yours are dealing with this now. Hugs. I hope you all are OK health-wise and that your house gets cleaned and renovated quickly! Hugs and Hugs!

    Oh goodness! So sorry about this, but living in an area where mold is problem, this is not first I’ve heard of things like this. Good luck! Prayers sent. Hopefully, it will all be better once your renovations are completed. I’ve lived in a house going through renovations before. It’s a major pain. Take care, Stacy!

    The book sounds good and I can see why you haven’t finished it. I know what you’re living through isn’t easy right now but when it improves your family’s health it will be worth it.

    OMG Stacy, I am so sorry you have to go through all this but, so happy this may solve the issues family members have been experiencing.
