Wesley Dixon of Carcassonne was in Whitesburg Appalachian Regional Hospital with pneumonia for about a week, then had to be taken to Kosair Children’s Hospital because he was not getting any better. He is better now. Wesley is the son of John and Jenny Dixon. Please say a prayer for the little guy; he has had such a hard time lately. As of Wednesday he had a lot seizures and they are really worried about that, but then later on in the week he had less of the seizures and was doing some better.
Tina Walters of Blackey has also been in WARH with pneumonia. She came home on Nov. 28 and is doing better.

Myself, my daughter Jennifer and my grandbaby Kaleb went to Virginia to do some Christmas shopping on Saturday. We had a nice day. I could stay for hours in the Hallmark Store. It’s a shame, though, we have to go out of state or another county to do our shopping because we have nothing around here.
