How is Randy Travis doing? While new updates have been few and far between on the award-winning country singer's health condition, clues that Randy Travis' rehabilitation has taken a turn for the worse are beginning to surface around the Web. Though it's certainly not a credible source, in a recent report by the National Enquirer, the "Three Wooden Crosses" singer is said to be struggling in to recover from the stroke he suffered this summer.

According to the source for the National Enquirer, the 54-year-old "Forever and Ever, Amen" singer is at his Texas home, but recovery is slow, and it's possible he'll never perform again.

"Randy is still paralyzed on his right side ... He can't walk, and he can barely speak ... There's nothing more doctors can do. Randy's chances of a full recovery don't look good," said the Enquirer's source.

While some may question the reputability of the source, still, other signs point to the fact Randy Travis may not be doing so well.

Randy Travis was hospitalized this summer due to a hereditary heart condition known as viral cardiomyopathy, which lead to congestive heart failure. At first it appeared as though his condition was improving with therapy. However, soon the country singer suffered a stroke. He was then quickly rushed to another medical center where he underwent brain surgery. Randy Travis' recovery has been a slow and uphill battle as friends, family and fans have offered continuous support in hopes that the singer would return to good health soon.

In early October, the singer reportedly returned home from the Texas physical therapy outpatient clinic he was transferred to after his surgery. At that time, Randy Travis' rep said the singer's condition was improving as he was completely off life support. In addition, Randy Travis' new album "Under the Influence: The Man I Am" released, but still there was plenty of recovery yet before he was back to his old self.

While multiple tour dates were set and things seem to be progressing well, suddenly updates stopped coming, and even the RandyTravis.com website where progress reports had previously been listed, had all information about his health erased. When checking around the web for tour date information, iDesignTimes discovered a number of the singer's engagements had been cancelled, including a recent Alabama and Friends at the Sea concert date, which was set to take place two weeks ago.

Here is the update provided by the event page:

"Alabama & Friends Festival at Sea and Sixthman join the rest of the country music world in offering healing thoughts and prayers for Randy Travis and his continued recovery. While we're grateful for his improving condition, we're sad to announce he'll be unable to join us for the upcoming cruise. Thank you for your patience as we've balanced the desire to respect him and his family in this difficult time with the need to address the potential impact on the cruise."

Though it's unclear how Randy Travis is doing currently, The Enquirer has cited another source who said, this about the singer's health condition:

"Randy is still confined to bed or a wheel­chair ... He has to wear a helmet to protect his skull until it heals. A nurse visits every day and he has two long-term caretakers."

Meanwhile, the singer's father, Harold Traywick, was reported saying "Randy is still in very bad shape ... It's possible he'll never perform again."

Just last month Billy Ray Cyrus issued this reminder to send up a prayer for the singer when you think of him.

"If you love Randy Travis, keep praying for Randy Travis," said Billy Ray Cyrus. For now, this may be the best support fans can offer.
