Ray Price Hospitalized With Diagnosis of Sepsis
By: Ben Foster
Country legend Ray Price developed a case of sepsis while in a Texas hospital earlier this week. His condition has been reported as stable.
On Wednesday Price's wife Janie posted the following message on his official Facebook page:
Just wanted to give you an update on Ray.
Last night Ray developed SEPSIS, a bad bacteria infection in his blood line. We rushed him to the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit and treatment was started. Rays blood pressure dropped too low and his heart rate too high. We were in watchful crisis all night long and through out early morning hours before he stabilized.
Dr. Red Duke is here in charge and coordinating all of the Specialists treating Ray.
I am at Rays bedside and have not left him for a second. I will continue to be ever watchful and give updates as Ray continues to improve.
Please remember Ray in your prayers tonight.
Blessings To All!
Other posts on Price's Facebook page, including some by Janie Price's wife Virgie Phillips, have indicated that the Country Music Hall Of Fame member has been in the hospital "for a month now," after having gone for follow-up exams for his pancreatic cancer in mid-September.
Best wishes to Price for a full recovery. In the meantime, fans can send get-well cards to the following address:
