Well to start, my mom had shoulder surgery in december and has been home for 2 months without ever leaving. She went back into the hospital last week sometime and she called me yesterday to tell me that their house was broken into. A family friend has been taking care of Bindi since mom has been in the hospital and went over to feed and play with her and found that the patio door in the basement was shattered. She called the cops immediately. They got fingerprints and footprints. The robbers started rumaging through mom and dad's things. Just opened a closet and two drawers so they didn't get very far. Dad said there were a few footprints in one of the bedrooms right by the windows, like they had heard Diane pull in the driveway. I believe they just started going through things when they heard her pull in. They took nothing. These people HAD to have been watching my parents since they knew mom had been home the past 2 months and was not home now. They HAD to have been watching. The landlord came over and put HUGE plywood on the patio door and it will be replaced tomorrow. Could you please place my family in your thoughts and prayers and hope that they do not come back, even though they had a chance to see my parents had computers, tvs and cameras and expensive things? Dad is hiding most of what he can so if they do come back it won't be as easy. He also is going to dust off some of my grandpa's old hand guns and hide them. I am scared for my dad since he is there alone. Trav and I are going over there tonight until he gets home from visiting my mom in the hospital and my sister is stopping over today to walk around the house and make sure everything is okay and she will be there when the new patio is delivered tomorrow. The cops and Diane are both watching the house right now too. Please just keep my parents in your prayers.
