Blairs to celebrate 51st wedding anniversary


Eric Back has been in the Pikeville Hospital for a few weeks now. His blood pressure keeps dropping. They did a full body scan on him because of the pain he is having, but they found nothing. Some of us went over Friday because he was not doing well. His blood pressure and his oxygen level keep going down. On Saturday, he was doing some better but was still in ICU. The family really appreciates David and Opal Jent of Carcassonne. They went over and visited with him and also check on him when he’s in the nursing home.
