Many of you, like us, wondered what in the world landed Chris Young in the Intensive Care Unit of a Denver Hospital last week. Even Chris said, "One minute I was fine and the next I was being rushed to the hospital."
We've learned more. Chris was treated last Tuesday at a Denver hospital for a small cut on his leg that had become infected. He was released and later on his way to Montana for a concert. En route, Chris went into septic shock and was rushed by ambulance back to the same hospital and scheduled for emergency surgery last Wednesday.
So, a dangerous bacterial infection was at the root of Chris’s medical ordeal.
Chris was released from the hospital over the weekend and is recovering at home. In fact, he plans to be back on stage Thursday night in California as part of Brad Paisley's Beat This Summer Tour.
Chris said he's thankful for the prayers of his fans and the care that “literally saved my life.”
A viral infection nearly claimed Randy Travis' life last month. He was in critical condition for some time and suffered a stroke. Randy is now recovering in a Texas rehabilitation center.
