I get chills when I hear Randy Travis’s words. His version of “Amazing Grace” was beautiful, even though he had a stroke a while ago. He did it to honor his fellow country music star, George Jones.
The famous singer Randy Travis played at the Grand Ole Opry. He stood on stage with blue and purple lights behind him and thought about George Jones, who had died not long ago. Alan Jackson, Vince Gill, and Travis Tritt, among other well-known singers, were also there.
Mary, Randy’s wife, has been very open about how hard it has been for Randy since his stroke and how fans have been there for him.
Randy Travis had a lot of health problems in July 2013. He was rushed to a hospital in Dallas because his viral heart condition was getting worse. He had a stroke, had surgery on his brain, and then went into a sleep. The doctors thought he might not make it; they said he had a 1% to 2% chance of living. In other words, they were thinking about giving up on trying to save his life.
Randy’s wife, Mary Davis Travis, had to make a hard choice. It was her choice whether to turn off the tools that were keeping her husband alive so he could sleep. In such tough scenarios, a lot of people have to make this choice.
Mary chose to do something else, though. The doctors told Mary that Randy had only a 1% to 2% chance of living, but she believed in him. For her, the choice to turn off the machines was not an option because she knew he was a fighter.
Mary told USA Today, “I prayed hard, ‘God, please let me have him back in any way, shape or form.'”
Randy was hooked up to a lot of lines and was in a coma. He looked very weak. Even though Randy was very sick, his wife Mary never thought to turn off the machines.
After that, something amazing took place. Randy got up.
“We’re lucky. We’re pleased with our situation. Mary said, “We don’t know what God has planned for us in the end. For now, we’re just happy to be here and singing a different song.” “We’re willing to help others in any way we can.” He would love to be back on that stage someday, of course. Our only goal right now is to enjoy life and feel very lucky.
Randy has been using a wheelchair since his stroke, but he is getting better. He can walk a short way by himself. He’s also getting back into singing, which he has always loved.
Over time, he learned to walk again, and in 2016, the Country Music Hall of Fame recognized him.
“Everyone who knows Randy knows what a crazy life he’s had.” “He’s had good and bad times in his life,” his wife says.
Randy still has aphasia, a language problem, but he has been praying and working hard to get back to the level of skill he had before. Take a look at Randy’s work and tell us what you think about his recovery!
WHAT HE DID AFTER HIS STROKES. IS IMPOSSIBLE. Mr. Travis, you are very smart and skilled. This still makes my spine chill. The emotion is clear to see and hear, and I pray that he gets better.
