My dad, Benson ‘Pnut’ Blair of Elk Creek, had to be taken by ambulance on Sunday, the 24th, from the Isom BP. When he got to the hospital his heart rate was down to 30. They had to put a machine on him to get it up. That night they took him to Pikeville and admitted him so a cardiologist could look after him and see what he needed. They said he might need a pacemaker but now they are just switching some medicine to see how he does. He came home on that Wednesday and, believe m, he was ready. He is doing a lot better now
My uncle, Dorse Back of Elk Creek, also came into the emergency room while we were there He could barely stand up and his sugar was really high. It pretty much stays that way. They sent him home but want him to have some tests done. He is doing better now
Gene Combs of Isom has been in WARH. They think he might have had a minor stroke. I talked to his wife Deb while we were there. I hope he gets better soon.
Linda Caudill of Doty had been in the hospital but is now home and doing better. She is the wife of Randall Caudill.
Wesley Dixon of Carcassonne has also been in the hospital. He had pneumonia again. I’m not sure if he is home yet. I wish him the best. He is the son of Jenny and John Dixon.
