My mother at age 86 is having more health concerns. When we were in NJ for the house settlement two weeks ago, she was admitted in the hospital. I have called her every day until Sunday. At each call I could sense a weakening on her part. On Sunday she could hardly talk. Most times I called she would cry. She is frustrated and becoming more and more depressed. She no longer can answer her phone right next to the bed.
So, Len and I decided to leave Houston as planned on Monday. But instead of heading north, to return to NJ. We left Houston 3:30 am Monday and made it to Cullman, AL to Len's sons yesterday at 5:45 pm, exhausted. A distance of 730 miles.
We left Cullman this morning at 5:40 and planned on stopping at a rest area around 6 tonight. We just could not make it. We are in a campground right off I81 in Lexington. We stopped at 4:00 pm having driven 526 miles. We have 312 miles to go.
We agreed we needed to rest tonight, have full hookups with A/C.
After visiting for a while with Mom and if she is doing better, we plan on staying closer to NJ, traveling no further than a 3 or 4 hour drive. This is not the time to be RVing great distances from home. I have to admit, I am not real optimistic as to her prognosis.
