Country singer Randy Travis condition has stabilized

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

Country singer Randy Travis remains in critical condition but now has stabilized. On July 7th, he was admitted through the emergency room of Baylor McKinney hospital. Dr. Michael Mack spoke about the first 48 hours and said "after transfer he required mechanical devices to support his circulation and his heart.

 

His heart did respond positively to that and after a 48-hour period of time we were able to wean him from that support.

 

During this period of time of resuscitation, he suffered a stroke. As a result of that stroke, pressure built up in his brain that required an emergency neurosurgical operation to relieve that pressure.

 

That operation was successful and Mr. Travis has awakened since that operation.

Also, Dr. Gary Erwin spoke and said " Mr. Travis is no longer requiring any mechanical devices that help support his heart. He does remain on intravenous medications to help support his heart, but we are decreasing the doses of those everyday and actually beginning to start him on oral medications which he will use long term to help support his heart."

Although Mr. Travis is still in critical condition, it has stabilized. We do not anticipate significant changes on a daily basis, but we will keep you informed as his condition improves say sDr. Michael Mack.
