Dennis Jones, popular North Carolina broadcaster and bluegrass personality, is feeling much better and recovering now at home after a brief hospitalization earlier this month. A bout with salmonella that would have been a mere inconvenience for most of us turned into a life-threatening situation owing to Dennis’ other health issues, but thankfully, doctors were able to arrest the bacterial infection and return him to good health after a week in the hospital.
He tells us this afternoon that he is feeling dramatically better, and is doing physical therapy 3-4 days a week, but expects that his visiting nurse can stop coming after this weekend. He’ll miss his spot on Goin’ Across The Mountain on WNCW tomorrow, but hopes to be back at the microphone by the following Saturday.
Wonderful news! It sounds like Dennis will be patrolling the boundaries of bluegrass music for quite some time to come.
Get well soon!
