Continued from Facebook, Gayle has had some help, Julie Harrington, and Julie Gibbs.

Ok, so GMa is doing ok now. The last few days were rough as she was very disoriented due to the Morphine and other drugs. The Doctor backed off on them. She is in the hospital for today and Thursday and I think on Friday she is going to a really nice care rehab facility on Neuman street and Beach Blvd, next to Huntington Beach Hospital, at the end of Neuman.
Gayle has been running ragged and the Water damage in our house being in a Hotel is not helping.  We moved back home without a kitchen so we will make one in the back yard and eat out. I am sick of eating out, it is not healthy.
Appreciating a home-cooked meal.
AAA has been very difficult to work with if you have an idea of what you are doing. I can see how insuance adjusters for the companies can litterly run you over. They are so ready to cut you a check and close the issue in a few days when it takes as few days to get your berings as to the simplicity or complexity of the project.
Luckily, I had Sam Bar of Clean Pro, Phone 800 949-2044, a pro when it comes to water restoration. He was on my side to guide me trough the insurance jungle. All the others that came on board with all Insurance driven persons. Being a non insurance representative, they typically treat the company like a 2nd class citizen and basically frustrate you.
Believe me if you do not know what you are doing when it comes to homeowners claims, or just not sure, get yourself an insurance adjuster.
I happened on Frank Vacarro, of Vacarro and Associates, nice guy, gave me some solid advice. It turns out he does lots of commerical property, and some personal. His phone number in the Huntington Beach, Orange County area is 714 536-3877/
G.W. Burke and Associates at 800 429-7070.
Most will not charge up front and will want 15-20% of the claim they get for you. They know how deal in the insurance companies language, which is different than ours.
More later on.
