After a myocardial infarction on September 8th I stayed in the Center of cardiology at Callian which I left on October 10th to return to the Rochilles' Estate of my brother and my sister-in-law at Draguignan. My cardiac readjustment was ensured by the day hospital “Helliades Santé” in Fréjus starting from October 16th at a rate of three half-days per week during forty sessions. But the cardiologists were not satisfied with the progression of my rehabilitation, consequently they returned me to the Center of Callian for new examinations and scanners in order to modify the medicaments treatment. I remained there again from November 27th to December 12th. Fortunately I profited from a splendid weather supporting the accompanied walks. I begun again cardiac readjustment in Hélliades on December 16th. Moreover my stay in Rochilles was prolonged due to the delay in the signature of the certificates by a solicitor for my future home at Trans-in-Provence.
On December 17th I went by train to Martigues to take delivery of my new truck at PSI-Azalaï. Alas I was stopped in my trip by a strike of railway men in Marseilles. I continued the way by bus to Martigues. Nothing was spared to me during the year 2013. I made the tour of my new truck with Mr Bernard Giraud the designer and manufacturer of the Azalaï's body. Then I returned to Draguignan by the highway while appreciating comfort and swiftness of the Mercedes "G". But I did not know when I could take again my world trip, I did not have any plan. I expected the completion of my cardiac readjustment at the end of February 2014 and the health evaluation with a test of effort and a cardiac echography giving EF, ejection fraction, whose value is determining for the physical-activity and the aptitude for altitude.

The X-mas Eve supper occurred at my nephew Christophe' home in Dunières with the all family, my brother and my sister-in-law, their children Christophe and Philippe and their grandchildren. I went there with my new truck, the distance from Draguignan to Dunières is approximately 400 km.
I do not know what the year 2014 will hold for me! At all events I wish myself a heart failure stabilized to take again my world trip with my truck-2.
