We had a busy but great week since our last report. Randy and Debra were back in Alabama for followup with the cardiologist and received a great report! And of course the four of us had a blast visiting again. There is never a shortage of laughter when we are together. With all the craziness going on in the world today laughter is such a blessing. On the LOL (Little Old Ladies) front, Aunt Helen has continued to improve. Aunt Jean unfortunately has now tested positive for Covid. However, she has absolutely no symptoms. She is now 97 years old. Remarkable! All the residents get tested each week so we will see what next week brings. At this point, since Helen has improved so much, we are back to the No Visit status but we will take the no visit status if we can keep getting good reports on our LOLs.
We completed some projects at the house such as exterior pressure washing and a few other items are off the list. We also really enjoyed our first Sunday back to in-person worship at Lester Memorial. It felt really good to be back in church. We did it very carefully with distancing and masks. We also decided we were ready for a little break and were able to get some last minute reservations, so this morning we began a little road trip. We are finally out of Alabama for a while! There’s nothing wrong with being IN Alabama, but we are on the road again! Tonight we are camped at Up the Creek RV park near Pigeon Forge. We have a pull-in site looking out the front window at Walden Creek and enjoyed sitting outside eating our hot dogs for supper. So restful and peaceful and a little cooler than the past few weeks at home. Hopefully we will get to do some hiking and bear viewing while we are here.
