Hello woke up to frozen hot water pipes. We got the kitchen up and running and the tub. but can't seem to get the bathroom sink hot water running...we're on a slab and I think the pipes are up in the attack. should I just crawl up there and heat the pipes from there? We've tried heatting the pipe under the sink but no luck so far.. any help would be great...thanks

Make sure the pipes have not burst. The ice may be stopping the water flow and it's possible the pipe has burst in one or more locations. The thaw process is sometimes hard because you will thaw one section and then just move the ice further down the line. Try getting some ambient air up into the attic from the house and put some kind of electric heater up there to warm the area. Good luck, I know frozen pipes are no fun.
