Life has been pretty hectic here.  But, the scariest thing just happened within the past couple of days.

My mother & dog had been exhausted all the time, had no energy, & were sleeping WAY too much.  One morning I noticed the Carbon Monoxide detector was reading 32.  I called our local fire department & they came out & found leaking was coming from our furnace.  Their meters were reading up to 38 once they walked into the house.  So, I had to have our gas company come out & shut off the gas until the furnace guy came in.  He said that the leak was minimal but he guestimated it had been leaking for the past 2 months!  Since I work 3rd shift & the furnance turns on mostly at night it wasn't affecting me but the fire department said it would have been just a matter of time until I came home to a dead mother & dog.  So, I had to pay over $2,300 for a new furnace.  It was just installed today.  The doctor & vet both said since it had been leaking so long (even though it was minimal it adds up) that in about a week my mother & dog should be back to normal.  If not, I am to take them back in for another examination.  So, that has been what is going on in my world right now.

This happens all the time in Nigeria from the fumes or exhaust of a generation. The next morning an entire family is wiped out.
