Randy Travis‘s condition has stabilized and he is showing signs of improvement, according to a statement from his physicians, Dr. William Gray and Dr. Michael Mack, at The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano in Plano, TX.
Travis was admitted to Baylor Medical Center in McKinney, TX last Sunday after suffering from a viral upper respiratory illness for about three weeks. Doctors subsequently diagnosed him with presumptive viral cardiomyopathy and congestive heart failure. Cardiomyopathy is a weakening of the heart muscle.
After doctors installed a device to help Travis’s heart pump blood more efficiently, the 54-year-old singer was transferred from McKinney to Plano for a higher level of specialized care.
The physicians also thanked Travis’s fans for their support and affection.
