First, I wanted to let you know that I had to go through my primary care doctor to get a referral about the cyst/ulcer in my mouth. An ENT scheduler called me yesterday and I have an appointment on tomorrow morning.
It isn’t hurting much now and has gone down a bit in size. I guess it was swollen from my having accidentally bitten it. Still a bit hard to eat around.
Apartment Complex Update:
Yesterday morning I dropped Charlie off at the vet’s office for his acupuncture appointment. They called me about an hour or so later to come pick him up.
As I was driving toward the complex gate to leave, two fire trucks blocked me. I saw about 8 firemen milling around.
I also saw a man in a suit standing on the sidewalk with his hands in his pockets. I parked and went up to him and asked if he was someone with complex management. He said no. That he was the chaplain.
Oh no. Oh no. Oh no, I thought. What has happened now?
We were promised someone from regional would be here to answer our questions all day yesterday. But he hadn’t shown as of then, which was close to noon. Whether he ever showed I don’t know.
No one was hurt, as I had initially feared. Apparently there was a water leak due to a water heater exploding. Not sure what that meant. But I suppose, not knowing who to call, the resident resorted to calling the fire department.
The firemen were looking for someone who managed the place. I told them there was no management or maintenance and hadn’t been for nearly a week.
They said something about that being a violation code. I don’t know of what. But they said they were going to find out who owned this place.
One firemen said, “We’re going to try to find some help for you people. We will find out who owns this property.”
Earlier that morning I had called the Tulsa courthouse looking for someone with jurisdiction over this problem. They said there was no one who fit the bill. They suggested I contact an attorney. I wasn’t paying for an attorney.
I’m not calling any news outlets because I fear retribution. I’ve been asking around so they will surely think it’s me if that happens.
I have now called the fire department (before this happened yesterday), the sheriff and the police department. No one seems to know what to do.
I called the manager of another complex who stayed after this new owner took over to say this was an accident waiting to happen over here.
I was told to: “Stop pushing buttons and leave it alone.” Then she hung up on me. And she once was someone I considered a friend.
But she had her own problems because she didn’t have any maintenance men either and was dealing with problems there.
Later in emails we exchanged, she apologized and I did the same because she really wasn’t the one responsible and I kind of took it out on her. She admitted that this was a real mess and had not been handled at all properly.
I’m going to meet my youngest daughter for lunch. It is her 41st birthday and we always meet for lunch on our birthdays. She chose Chinese food today.
I have a few errands to run before we meet up so I’m heading out soon.
