Michael Ray rings in the New Year with a joyful heart as his father recovers from a major medical procedure. Four days ago, on December 28, Michael Ray’s father underwent open heart surgery at Leesburg Regional Medical Center in Leesburg, Florida.
Prior to the operation, the beloved country singer reached out to his fans, asking for prayers and good vibes. Thankfully, those prayers were heard. With his father awake and on the road to recovery, the pair rang in the New Year together at the hospital with friends and family by their sides.
“What do you do when your pops is still in the hospital after having open heart surgery on New Year's Eve?” Michael Ray wrote in a Facebook post early this morning. “You pack a car load of ppl [sic] and surprise him and bring in 2018 with your main man with a big whisper of "Happy New Year" when it strikes 12 midnight in the hospital!”
With many thanks, he informed his fans that his father is “doing amazing”, and that he looks forward to what the coming year will bring.
