Country crooner Randy Travis was hospitalized yesterday for viral cardiomyopathy, which means that his heart muscles have suffered deterioration, and it could lead to heart failure. While he was recently listed as critical, his family has revealed that the American Idol guest star did in fact have to undergo heart surgery.
Travis’ sister-in-law, Teresa Traywick released the following statement about Randy: “We have been told he has had surgery. Our prayers are going out to him because my husband just had a heart attack last year, so it is in their family. Their mother passed away at an early age with her heart, so it is like these boys are following right in their footsteps. My prayers are with them. That’s all I can say right now.”
The 54-year-old reportedly underwent surgery on Monday, but no other word has been leaked about how he is doing at the moment. Stay tuned as we will keep you updated on Randy’s progress as we hear more.
