ELMER FOUND OUT WHAT MADE JOHN SICK
Problem being, at this time, John is going through that age when he knows everything and us older folks don't know anything. So when the doctor results of all the tests that John had taken came through, John did not go along with them. It ended with the doctor saying if John had been working in the house for two months and this recently started, he believed that John's health problems was do to something he put in the house and not something that was in the house. Doctor suggested more tests, which John wanted to think about.
Finally, after getting John's permission, I called a company from Rochester, New York to come in and test the house. While we were waiting for them to come, we got all the receipts for what we put in our house and John got his receipts out for all he put in his house. There had to be something that was in his house that wasn't in ours. He could breath in our house. Also Eli's son got his receipts for what he had put in his house as he had remodeled his and John could breath in his house. Nothing that would effect John's health was in any of our receipts.
The company came from Rochester and ran all sorts of tests. They ran the tests through and called us on my cell phone (with Eli's permission). The said there was no asbestos, black mold, etc. Whatever it was - was something that he put in the house. Then they said: they are not doctors, but could it be the insulation. John said no.
That evening, we were all at our house and tried to decide what was different in the insulation that was in the three houses. We had our insulation blown in our house, Eli's son had his blown in his house, but John was putting his in his house. Off we went to John's house. He hadn't been in it since he got sick. He walked in the door and started sneezing. We got him out immediately. He stopped. All of us went to where he stored the insulation that he hadn't put in the house yet. Soon as he walked in, he started sneezing. We got him out immediately.
Next day, Eli and his and John's friends went over to the house and took down the walls and took out the insulation. I called the company in Rochester and they sent a crew down to put something on the walls that made sure all the insulation was out. They also took out the rest of the insulation that John had stored. After they left, we took John into the house and he could breath. The next day he went there to work for a few hours to make sure and he was just fine. So now, we are waiting for the people that blew the insulation in our house and Eli's son's house to blow it into John's house.
We finally got to the bottom of this with John and he was trying to save money. Putting in the insulation is less expensive than having it blown in. In the end, it cost more money than if he had let them blow it in to begin with. There is something that is in the insulation that he was putting in that is not in the insulation that is blown in that he is allergic to.
After service Sarah's Father slipped me an envelope with some money in it for John. I told him, it was John's problem, but he said it will be his daughter's home too. It had the money in it to pay for having the insulation blown into the house. Anna and I paid the bills for the company from Rochester. Bishop Eli went to the hospital to pay John's hospital and doctor bill. Anna and I offered to pay it, but Eli said no. He said to think of all the donations we had made over the years - now it was time for John to receive. The only loss John has is for the original insulation that he bought. He said he won't forget that.
Eli and I were talking about this. Eli told me to enjoy that John admits that I am right, he was wrong as we may not have this happen again for a long time.
