2. According to his doctors, it wasn't the booze that put him where he is now -- it was his family.
3. Assuming nothing changes, he'll be out of the hospital in two to three weeks, and he'll spend several months in physical therapy.
Right now, that's all that matters. Whether or not he'll be able to sing again remains to be seen. But for today, Randy Travis is a lucky man.
