Wes Martin spent days in the Wilkes Medical Center emergency room in early September, his wife Jeri at his side. To pass time and take their minds off Wes' sudden respiratory condition, she started a daily Facebook post titled, "Tales from the ER."
He's a theatre arts teacher at West Wilkes High School, and Jeri said his students message him daily.
"He's beloved by his students, and I know they miss him," she said. "They love doing shows, and they can't do them without him. It affects a lot of people in the community when just one person gets sick."
