Randy Travis Shows ‘Signs of Improvement’
(DALLAS) -- Randy Travis, who was hospitalized in critical condition with presumptive cardiomyopathy and congestive heart failure, seems to be doing better, his physician Dr. Michael Mack, tells ABC News in a statement.
“His condition has stabilized,” Mack, director of cardiovascular disease at the Baylor Health Care System in Dallas, said. “He has shown signs of improvement.”
Mack and another physician, Dr. William Gray, Director of cardiovascular services at Baylor Medical Center at McKinney, Texas, have been responsible for Travis’ care since he was first sought medical help on Sunday. According to Gray, Travis, 54, was admitted through an emergency department to his hospital. “At McKinney, he was stabilized and subsequently sent to The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano for a higher level of specialized care,” Gray said in a statement.
Then he entered the care of Mack, who added that the medical team will continue to give further updates about the country star.
“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,” he stated.
