Randy Travis: In Stable Condition, Awake and Alert

by at . Comments

Slowly but surely, Randy Travis is on a path to recovery.

That was the hopeful message passed along yesterday by the singer's doctor, as Travis is now in stable condition following a stroke on July 7.

He is "awake and alert, interacting with his family and friends and beginning to start doing some early physical therapy," according to physician Gary Erwin.

Travis will likely remain in the hospital for another couple weeks to stabilize his heart (he was initially put under doctor's care for presumptive cardiomyopathy and congestive heart failure), but will be weaned off his ventilator in the near future.

Mary Davis, Travis' fiancee, has also thanked loved ones for "the outpouring of love and affection that has shown up at the hospital and at home, and through several different avenues of support."

She added in her statement:

"Those are prayers that have helped mend his heart [and Travis] 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."
