Randy Travis 'awake and alert'

Randy Travis is "awake and alert" following brain surgery.

The country music star underwent the operation last week to relieve pressure on his brain after a stroke earlier this month and doctors say he has "responded well".

Dr. Gary Erwin, an intensivist at The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano, said: "In terms of his stroke, he has responded well to the surgical procedure he had to relieve the pressure in his brain.

"We're seeing improvements in brain scans showing decreased swelling of his brain.

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

Randy's condition as been identified as idiopathic cardiomyopathy, which means he has scarring of the heart muscle which has left it weak and unable to support his circulation without aid from medication or machines.

Gary added his team hope to help him to be able to support his own breathing, but admitted it will be a long recovery for the 'My Greatest Fear' singer.

Randy's fiancee, Mary Davis, has reached out to thank everyone for their concern and said the musician will be "touched" when he realizes the extent of the support

She added: "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.

"It's heart-warming to see that we have such a strong person under there that's willing to fight with us. We all know now that we had greatness to work with.

"We ask for your continued support. I know that Randy will be so touched by that when he understands the magnitude of it all."
