Yesterday Tiff and I were able to smell gas at our new home. I called the gas and electric company to report the problem and they said they would send someone right over. At 11:30 last night they finally did. Then they shut off my gas.
First thing this morning, I called a plumbing company and asked them to come out and repair the problem. They were much more timely, arriving within about an hour. Unfortunately there is a significant amount of work that needs done (not to mention a significant bill to pay) but they will be done with it all tomorrow probably mid day.
The plus side of this is that, the need to access the garage is paramount as that is where we will be routing the gas line. This meant that I needed to get some serious work done un-packing from the move and organizing the garage. I am happy to say that I made huge progress in this regard. Additionally when Tiff got home I was able, for the first time since my surgery, change Jaxon's diaper. Obviously one would not normally be excited about changing a diaper, but I was quite glad to be able to help with things again. I am quite confident that the ability to perform these tasks today was made possible by the efforts of having practiced some Xi Gong over the past week and having spent my time resting appropriately and at appropriate times. Additionally today is the first time since the surgery when I haven't taken any pain medications. An accomplishment in and of itself.
