Randy Travis Stabilizes, Doctors Say

Singer Acquired a Viral Upper Respiratory Illness

Randy Travis’ doctors have stated the singer’s “condition has stabilized and he has shown signs of improvement” although he remains in critical condition. His doctors released a video statement on Wednesday (July 10).

Dr. William Gray, director of cardiovascular services at Baylor Medical Center at McKinney, Texas, said Travis “had been in previously excellent health until three weeks prior when he developed a viral upper respiratory illness.”

Gray noted that Travis had been admitted to the emergency department on Sunday with a presumptive cardiomyopathy and congestive heart failure. His condition was stabilized at Baylor McKinney before he was transferred to the Heart Hospital Baylor Plano in Plano, Texas, for more specialized care.

Dr. Michael Mack, director of cardiovascular disease at the Baylor Health Care System in Dallas, noted, “Since [Travis’] transfer, his condition has stabilized and he has shown signs of improvement.”

Mack added, “On behalf of his Mr. Travis’ family, friends and associates, we would like to express our extreme gratitude for the overwhelming affection and support that Mr. Travis has received.”
