Rob's cousin Tom Schmiedel just called me from Elkhart, KS. Rob is still about 10 miles from Elkhart.
Apparently, the saddle sore is quite bad and causing serious pain, hence his slow pace into Elkhart. It is in danger of becoming infected and may already be.
There is no cell phone service so the crew sent Tom ahead to ask me to contact Rob's doctors here in CT to see what some options might be, but they are all on lunch break until 1:00 PM EDT.
