Entries made into family records by Irene June: "Welcome back to the land of the living"-said the Dr. Dicky was delivered by my 3rd doctor-Dr. Lawton in Holden Hospital, Holden, WV. He also advised me to have no more children. Said it was killing me. (I had cried when he told me I was pregnant again. When he was 6 weeks old I took him to the hospital for his checkup. The Dr. said he was "almost dead with pneumonia. Bring him back each day for a week for penicillian shot.") I had had him blessed when he was about a month old. The blessing did not sound very good. The record of this blessing was never made. It was lost. I had him blessed again after he had started school. This one was better. To return to the thought above. He was so sick one night (evening) that I asked his father to keep the 3 kids while I drove mom to the store (in dad's car) and got things for his lunch the next day. He said he would. While waiting for my mother to get ready, the coal train 'came out' with his train of cars. I saw a small boy run from in front of the train. The train had almost ran over both Don & Carol and a neighbors son-same size. I ran home. There was my husband asleep on the bed, coal all over every floor in the house, and all three kids, the baby asleep, coal over him, & his bed. So much coal heaped upon the two fire places that it was impossible to put another lump of coal on the top. There was not a lump of coal in the coal bucket. I used my husband's bath water to clean up the kids, and shut the doors (they were all open with a foot of snow on the ground outside) and then clean up the floors. My husband slapped me around, all over the front room (sized 14' by 22') because I used his bath water. My mother raised sand because she did not get me to take her to the store that night. I was scared to death that the coal in the fireplaces was going to start burning before I could get some onto the hearth to cool off. The rest I clean up and put back into the coal bucket & carried in more for the next morning. My husband went out-got drunk and did not work the next day, just to show me who was boss.
