Autopsy results

I sat down and actually read the autopsy today. That’s some reading material that no mama should ever have to read. It’s just so not right. Or fair.

I knew the results before today. I had the coroner give me the paraphrased version of the results, including the cause of death (acute pneumonia due to RSV). I just hadn’t actually read it before… I couldn’t bring myself to. But today, today I am angry. I am angry because I believe that there is some sort of environmental cause for Elias’ death and I believe that the powers-that-be in the town of Whitestown know – or at the very least, suspect – something is wrong.

I just wish we knew why his cadmium and chromium levels were so high. There’s just no satisfactory explanation at all. Even more troubling is the fact that a nearby family tested positive for large doses of metals in their system. This should not be in a new housing addition. So what gives here? And why will no one help us find answers??

Another lazy Sunday plus some hatred of Beazer Homes

Today was a good day. We actually stayed home all day, which makes me happy. I like having us all together at home.

Supper tonight was entertaining. We had steak, pierogies, and shoe-peg corn. Noah made a huge pig of himself, especially with the steak. He just couldn’t get enough!! It was pretty comical.

Now all the kids are in bed and quiet.

I’m watching a show called 15 X-Treme Outdoor Projects where they completely renovate backyards. I really wish we could do something to our backyard. I learned recently that it’s truly a pipe dream, though. Apparently in Beazer’s infinite wisdom of lime-stabilizing yards, they made growing anything pretty much an impossibility. That explains why our trees are dying. That makes me so angry. It’s just one more way Beazer screws their customers.

Every Christmas that Jon and I have been married, we have bought a small pine tree. They are currently turning brown and not looking so hot. Now I realize that watching them die is what I have to look forward to.

I really hate Beazer. I hate their shoddy workmanship, I hate their customer service, I hate the corners they cut.. I just hate Beazer overall.
