Country singer Randy Travis is awake and recovering after suffering a stroke last week. After days of uncertainty and concern for his life, the doctors at The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano have reported that the singer is now awake and alert, talking to friends and family, and while Travis remains on a ventilator, he is breathing spontaneously and his breathing support is gradually being reduced, Sky News report.

Travis has also begun physiotherapy and is strengthening by the day. The staff at the hospital reported that he will stay at The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano for two more weeks, until his recovery is nearly finished, after which time he will be transferred into a specialised facility in order to undergo intense physical therapy. According to his doctors, it will take months for Travis to fully recover from the stroke, however at this point the signs are all good. The hospital professionals also confirmed that it was, in fact, scarring of the heart, which led to the series of unfortunate events and Travis’ eventual stroke. The singer isn’t even in the typically defined stroke risk group, which includes people over 65, according to the American Stroke Association. The singer is 54, however there were clearly a lot of complicating factors in his case.

The trouble started at the beginning of last week.

Travis' partner, Mary Davis, said he was "miles beyond where any of us thought he would be a few days ago".

She added: "It's heart-warming to see that we have such a strong person under there that's willing to fight with us."
