Watson family called to Doc’s side

We have learned that the family of Doc Watson has been called to his side at Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem, NC.

Doc has been hospitalized there for the past few days, undergoing surgery on Thursday evening to repair an impacted colon, which ultimately involved its removal. That surgery had initially been described as successful, but Watson has been in the ICU listed in critical condition since Friday.

We could be seeing the sad end to a very noble life.
