Randy Travis Health Update – Statements from His Doctors and His Fiancee [Video]

Kirt Webster & Associates

Tonight we have an update on Randy Travis’s condition and more details on how his heart issues evolved. And, he has a fiancee. I miss that somehow, did you, too?  Randy’s publicist Kirt Webster provides this link to Baylor Hospital’s video statement. 

In a nutshell, heart troubles began with a viral infection, but at the root of his troubles is something more chronic. The singer has been hospitalized for eight days, much of which he’s spent on life support.

They now know Randy has “idiopatchic cardiomyopathy”,which is scarring of the heart muscle. There is no infection, but it was not caused by either drugs or alcohol. Family history is more to blame, the doctors say.

He will remain at the Heart Hospital for two or three weeks and then begin “aggressive physical therapy.” One of the doctors says, “We anticipate it will take months to recover from the stroke,” Dr. Erwin says.

Mary Davis, Travis’ fiancee expressed thanks for well-wishes from fans and assured them the singer feels each prayer. “He’s miles beyond where any of us thought he would be a few days ago,” Davis says.

Travis is still listed in critical condition, but has stabilized.
