in the process of recovery

A couple of months ago, part of the SIL's house burned down. It was not a happy event for everybody considering she had a lot of stuff that got burned that day. They are still in the process of repairing the damage in their house while dealing with the insurance claims, kids going to school, helping her mom and older kids' needs, and a lot of things besides. She was thankful that the firefighters were good at making sure not to get a lot of stuff wet. She said they were efficient, some firefighters were moving things our of the way while others deal with the fire hose spewing water to help stop the fire. The fire was put out with the least damage possible but it is still a lot of work to get things back to normal. They have to replace a lot of things including electronics, tools, small engines like mowers and some power tools. Like I said, they are still in the process of rebuilding what was burned down while trying to get by day after day. It is not easy for them but she said they will get through this alright. We all hope they will. It must not be easy to recover but I think the SIL and her family will be fine.
