Randy Travis' Fiancee Offers Update
Posted July 16th, 2013 @ 7:32am

Randy Travis' fiancee says that the country singer is, "Miles beyond where any of us thought he would be a few days ago."

Mary Davis and Travis' doctors gave an update on Randy's condition Monday afternoon.  Dr. Michael Mark walks us through Travis' since the stroke last week.  Dr. Mark explains that Travis suffered a stroke which required emergency surgery.  Randy Travis has idiopathic cardiomyopathy which means, "he has scarring of his heart muscle that is causing his heart to be weak and not able to support his circulation without help of either medical devices of medication."

Dr. Mark also noted, "This is not the appearance of either drugs or alcohol causing the heart condition.  Mr. Travis does have a family history of cardiomyopathy and it is more likely related to that."

Travis' fiance Mary Davis also shared some words.  She says:

"I know that Randy feels each and every one of those. He feels the hands of the doctors and the care of the nurses and the love of his fans. His friends and family have all been touched by that. He is responding well to voices and he sees and he understands. He’s miles beyond where any of us thought he would be a few days ago."

Davis also thanks everybody for all of the outpouring of love and support.
