As an update to our clarification that Randy Travis had NOT yet had his heart surgery, we're now hearing from CBS that he's had a device implanted into his heart to keep it pumping, and that he's still in critical condition.
We hope it helps!
As a reminder, Randy was hospitalized on Sunday, and is currently being treated for viral cardiomyopathy — an infection that weakens the heart and can lead to heart failure. It's not a good situation to be in at all, and we can only hope for the best at this point.
To make matters worse, this seems to be a common family problem.
Music wouldn't be the same without Randy! We hope he makes it through!
