My son Alex and daughter in law Heidi renovate old houses for a living. These are more than just flips. They take the house that everyone is afraid to touch and bring it back to be a wonderful home for a family. They are working on a house that was built in the early 1900s located in Chehalis, Washington that was bank owned and had not been loved for a long time. They are very good at this work and have always done the entire renovation themselves. On Friday, Dec. 8, 2017, as Alex was painting the outside of the house, he fell off the ladder onto concrete and broke both arms. We are blessed that he did not get hurt more severely, but it still required him to be transported to Harbor View Hospital in Seattle (the best trauma center in the state). On Saturday he underwent 10 hours of surgery to repair both arms .
He will be recovering over the next three months and will need to either contract out some of the work on the house or let it sit until he can return to work. You can imagine how debilitating this is for someone in this line of work. They are both very worried about getting the house done - adding to the stress of the injuries.
I am asking for funds so they can hire some help to keep the work going on the house. I have no idea how much they will need, but I thought I would start with $8,000.00 goal. It may not be enough, but anything would help. I know this is a tough time of year for everyone. Thank you so much for your generosity. If you cannot contribute please pray for the family.
Carey Murray, Alex's mom.
