Randy Travis May Never Perform Again?

Thursday, October 31, 2013

Randy TravisAILING Randy Travis‘ singing career might be over after the country star underwent a second radi­cal brain surgery.

Sources tell American tabloid the National Enquirer that Travis, 54, is now recovering at his Texas home, and may never perform again.

“Randy is still paralyzed on his right side,” a family friend said. “He can’t walk and he can barely speak.

“There’s nothing more doctors can do. Randy’s chances of a full recovery don’t look good.”

Travis suffered a stroke in July while hospitalized with congestive heart failure and viral cardiomyopathy. At that time, he underwent surgery to relieve pressure on his brain. Doctors removed a section of Travis’ skull to reduce potentially deadly brain swelling, and implanted it in a pouch in his abdomen to keep it alive and sterile. In mid-October, the skull fragment was reattached to his head with titanium screws. A similar procedure was performed on famed Las Vegas illusionist Roy Horn after he was viciously attacked by a tiger onstage.

“Randy is still confined to bed or a wheel­chair,” said the source.

“He has to wear a helmet to protect his skull until it heals. A nurse visits every day and he has two long-term caretakers.”

    I started listening to country music largely because of Randy Travis and his songs are among some of my favorites of all genres. I’ve seen him perform twice and was mesmerozer by his incredible voice both times. Get well randy!

    I can truly feel for the family. I am 43 years old and my brother who is 52, had a stroke about a year ago that affected his right side as well. He pretty much stays in his wheel chair but can walk with support of a walker. He has No use of his right hand and does not make much sence when he speaks. Very heartbreaking to see his life he now lives. I will keep you in my prayers Randy… Please don’t give up.
    When you get better Randy please e-mail me, would Love for my brother to read it. Maybe it would give him hope because I think he has given up.

    Your Fan, Jenny
