Bill Johnson of Woodrock is still in Good Samaritan Hospital in Lexington, but is now able to sit up some and his ventilator is down for his breathing. They also said he is trying to talk and nods his head when they talk to him.
His grandson, Shane Dixon, had surgery on his head, and got the staples out. Now he has a pocket of fluid in his forehead. He has had so many health problems recently. I wish them both the best. Shane is the son of Jina Back.
An ambulance had to be called out for my dad, ‘P-nut’. His blood sugar had dropped so low he was sweating and about to pass out. My mom, Jean, gave him peanut butter and they checked him out, and he was doing better so they didn’t have to take him to the hospital. It’s very scary when your sugar drops like that. I’ve had it happen to me before.
My mom has been coughing for over two weeks now, and went to the doctor and ER about six times. Finally on Friday, they put her in the hospital in Hazard and ran tests on her. They said she had a problem with acid reflux, and they want her to see another doctor about it. She got out on Saturday evening.
Virgil Combs of Carcassonne was still in WARH as of Saturday evening. He has pneumonia again and is having a lot of breathing problems.
My son Justin and my nephew Joshua Dixon went to Michigan over the weekend. They left on Friday and came back Sunday evening they went and visited with Jessica Sparks and her girls, Kay Dance and Kameron.
