In Tennessee and backed up again.

Well, we were delayed about a week on getting away from New York. There were some wicked storms with flooding here in Tennessee, then we got rain in New York. But we finally got on the road and had a safe trip. We did have one strong storm in Kentucky, but it was during night while we were parked and sleeping.

We got word that our friend Cal Doud from Florida had died the morning after leaving, and decided NOT to turn around to be back in NY for his funeral. Due to the fact it was still pretty wet here, we decided to park at Loretta's brother-in-law's near Chapel Hill. Even there we opted to park on the gravel drive rather than the grass. It has since dried up, but we haven't moved our rig.

Loretta hasn't been feeling well all summer, but didn't want to visit doctor after we got here. She had fallen shortly after getting to NY and thrown her back out so we both went to the Chiropractor for adjustments and she did a follow up today. However, a week ago last Friday afternoon she complained of Chest Pain when breathing. I feared pneumonia and as we couldn't get into the doctor, I took her to the ER at Maury Regional Hospital in Columbia. They ran a bunch of tests including, blood, EKG, X-Ray, CT Scan and MRI. The pain receded shortly after arriving there. She spent 2 nights there (the first mostly undergoing tests) and came home on Sunday. A trip to our primary physician on Monday let us know that he was in doubt to the underlaying cause of her problem. I also had a doctor visit today myself and will follow up with a specialist.

She hasn't felt up to doing a lot except sleeping. So except several trips shopping and to her daughter's we have pretty well stayed put. I have done a few minor repair and maintenance tasks on both the truck and trailer and still have some to do. I have also assisted Cliff in some of his tasks, but not a lot.

Not much more to report at this time.

GOD Bless
Andy and Loretta
