EXCLUSIVE

0708_randy_travis_tmzCountry superstar Randy Travis is in CRITICAL CONDITION after suffering from complications stemming from recently acquired viral cardiomyopathy ... this according to the singer's rep.

We're told the 54-year-old Grammy winner was admitted to a hospital in Texas yesterday. 

According to the Mayo Clinic, cardiomyopathy is a "disease that weakens and enlarges your heart muscle." Cardiomyopathy can lead to heart failure.

It's unclear what caused Travis' condition.

Travis was scheduled to perform in Deadwood, South Dakota on Wednesday.

Travis is my all time favorite country singer. It appears that alcohol has taken a toll on him

Randy: have listened to you for years and saw you at Ohio State Hospital when your friend was ill. Didn't talk with you then---you were stressed to the max and didn't need fans then. I have been praying for your recovery and God answers prayers. Hang in there and know you have lots of people in this world who think highly of you and don't want to give you up yet. Fight your hardest and speedy recovery!

Been a big fan for years! Saw you in Columbus, Ohio hospital when your friend was sick. Didn't bother you then as you did NOT need fans then. I have been praying for you through the alcohol issues and now through this. God really does answer prayers! You have lots of people out here praying for you. Get well and have a speedy recovery! We are not ready to give you up yet! Hang in there!

Is it just MY imagination, or does Randy Travis's face look long and thin, and sickly?

pray that he will be well soon and that this will be a wake up call for him. We are not invincible. Reckless living eventually will catch up with anyone/ no matter how famous one may be.

What an unfortunate name for a virus:

"Coxsackievirus is a virus that belongs to a family of nonenveloped, linear, positive-sense ssRNA viruses, Picornaviridae and the genus Enterovirus, which also includes poliovirus and echovirus. Enteroviruses are among the most common and important human pathogens, and ordinarily its members are transmitted by the fecal-oral route."

And look how it is frequently transmitted.

Too bad Randy didn't take better care of his health. He might not have acquired this virus.
Abusing your system certainly doesn't help in resisting other health vectors.

This is unfortunate but COMPLETELY CURABLE. What Government won't tell you: Heart disease is caused by Roundworms aka HEARTWORMS. When roundworms attack the heart your body backbuilds tartaric acid, then calcium goes in to bind it all. Without enouugh Magnesium YOU WILL GET HEART DISEASE. His heart is LOADED with parasites. Look up "The Manual of the International List of Causes of Death" USGov printing 1929 Edition and go to pg 285. ALL disease is parasitic. USGov 'reclassified' parasites as disease in 1940's and by 1960...'s NO DOCTOR KNEW THE TRUTH. Very sad. The "Gerson Miracle Diet" + Magnesium Bicarbonate can absolutely heal him.
