We found out earlier this week that Randy Travis, 54, was hospitalized Sunday (7/7) in critical condition for a viral cardiomyopathy, a weakening of the heart muscle.
Yesterday word came through media outlets like People magazine, that Travis's sister-in-law Teresa Traywick said the singer had heart surgery for the condition. Now Travis's publicist issued a statement denying that he underwent heart surgery, but instead underwent a procedure to implant a device that helps support blood flow in people with weakened hearts.
Either way, it sounds serious and he needs all the thoughts and prayers he can get.
