Where to start!
Monday morning I put Jay on the van to dialysis. About two hours later he was back home. His arm had clotted up and we needed to be in Livonia at St Mary’s on Tuesday morning. More on this later.
On Monday I had gotten up early and set up my kitchen to can red currants. Mike & Shirley ( friends) had brought over a sack of them on Sunday afternoon. Well after Jay heated water for oatmeal that morning I noticed smoke coming out of the holes where the control knobs are. Then the igniter started clicking but there were no burners turned on. I tried turning on some of the burners and a blue arc & flash came out to the holes. O K that was enough for me. This is a duel fuel stove so there is gas and electricity involved. So I called 911 and my friendly fire department responded. They did some checking, disconnected both the power and gas, and pulled the stove out from the wall.
What is there when an appliance isn’t moved frequently.
They asked me if I wanted it pushed back in and I answered no so they moved it outside for me.
Next thing on the menu was to clean up the mess which I did.
Much better now!
The stove is out here.
Looks good for 13 years old too bad it died.
Now it is still sitting out side three days later. The hole where it was it still empty because I haven’y been able to arrange ordering a new one. Why? Well that is the other part of my three days.
On Tuesday I took Jay to the hospital ( roughly 84 miles away) arriving at 9:30 am. The surgery was done, the clot cleared in his dialysis arm, and we were on our way home. It was too late to arrange financing for the stove so I was going to call Wednesday morning.
On Wednesday I called and left a message but DaVita called and said Jay’s arm was clotted again. Over to pick him up, back down the 84 miles, and into the hospital again. After waiting the afternoon I found out he was going to be staying the night and possibly a couple of days. So it was back home again and try to get things caught up there.
Now I have the currants in the freezer, the canning stuff put away, but I still have an empty hole where the stove should be. I’m going to call about financing, try to locate a stove, and check on Jay’s progress this morning.
Have a great day everyone!!
