UPDATE: January 25th, 11:30am Central- From Libbi Perry:

His temp is down to 99.3 from 103.5, but they are doing a chest ex-ray to check his lungs. They seem to think there is bacteria somewhere. But even their highest acting antibiotics have not worked. His vitals are a little higher than has been. But this could be happening due to the part of the brain that controls the body temp being effected from bleed out. Just don't know right now.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

UPDATE: January 25th, 7am Central- From Libbi Stuffle:

Urgent prayers are needed! Tracy has a 103 degree Neurological fever. They have ice on him in areas and they are putting a cooling blanket under him. Please pray that his temperature can go down.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

UPDATE: January 24th, 9:15am- From Libbi Stuffle (Facebook):

Tracy's numbers are staying where they are suppose to be. Blood pressure still fluctuates, especially when they have to suction. He's still sedated. He's having a little more movement on his left side, but nothing on the right side. But the neuro doctor said it's still early in the game.

I spent most of the night holding his hand. When I hold his hand, he will rub his fingers against mine and squeeze and he tries to turn my wedding ring around. He opened his eyes a couple of times last night for a few seconds. I sang to him and played some quiet time hymns and songs.

I will update daily at 9am after I see his doctor and he gives me updates. I will also update in the afternoon or evening. I didn't last night because I was really tired.

UPDATE: January 23rd, 8:45am- From Libbi Stuffle (Facebook):

Not a lot of changes through the night other than his temp is normal! PTL

They have had to up his blood pressure medication. It's having a hard time staying down where they need it, even with added Meds. His nurse said this morning that if the BP goes too high and he has another bleed out, his life as he knew it would be done!

They are being VERY adamant about LESS visitors today and absolutely no talking and stimulation from the few visitors that they will allow today! I have been lectured twice on this in the last 9 or ten hours! They said they saw by all the visitors he had yesterday and last night that he was a very loved and thought of person.

No CT scan will be done today, maybe tomorrow. Still allowing time for blood in the fluid cavities to drain off. I will update later if any changes are made.

Thanks for all the overwhelming amount of prayers, text messages, phone calls and emails!!!! You will never ever know how much it means to our family!

Also, one other thing: the guys, Joseph and Bryan will be filling all dates this weekend! Ms. Leah Melissa Page will be filling in for me. Leah is a very incredible singer and I requested her to step in to fill my place. I ask that you will continue to support the group during this time. I know if Tracy could speak he would tell you this would be a big support to him and for him. I feel my place is to be here during these crucial days. I beg you to please understand.

UPDATE: January 23rd,  1:48am - from Libbi Stuffle (Facebook):

Ok...I forgot that I have not posted any thing since drainage cath was put in. I've been almost 40 hrs with no sleep. Can't eat or sleep until I know my Sweet T is out of the woods! Yes, I know I have to take care of myself too, and I am.

Drainage cath was placed into brain to drain off blood from bleed out. The blood in the fluid cavities is draining off! We noticed movement about 30 minutes later. They now have Tracy sedated so all of his pressures can rest. He also needed a mouth-inserted trach to open up his airway. This is a breathing machine, not a vent! They've had to strap his left arm down due to him trying to pull tubes out.

As of right now, he is running a temp of 100. Sometimes this common because the brain controls the temperature. But, they are keeping an eye on it to make sure there is not a infection somewhere.

They should be doing another CT scan Wednesday. I will update if they do.

I am sooooo overwhelmed at the out pouring of love that has been shown Tracy! He would never believe it! He sometimes feels like no one really cared about his part in the group. Well, I can't wait for him to see all of y'alls FB pages! I have sat here beside him crying...looking at pics, prayer request postings, and the kind and generous remarks about him!! Trust me I will show him as soon as he's out of the woods! I don't even know the correct words to use to express my gratitude and thanks for every prayer that has been lifted on his behalf! I love you all sooooooo much!! Please keep praying for my Sweet T!

UPDATE: January 23rd, 1:41am - from Bill Bailey (Facebook):

Not much to post on Tracy's condition other than he needs a miracle. Today's ct scan showed worsened bleeding. After some extensive treatment today, we are hoping for better results on the next ct scan. That scan may not take place till Thursday, depending on his progress on Wednesday. Libbi has been inundated with Facebook messages, texts, emails, and visits. Please know that she is overwhelmed at the outpouring, but is unable to respond personally. Thanks for your continued support and prayers for her and Tracy, as she stays by her husband's side. I'm bedding down for the night before heading back to the hospital in the morning.

UPDATE: January 22nd,  1:50pm- from Libbi Stuffle:

We have just seen the neuro surgeon. The second bleed out in Tracy's brain is filling up the fluid cavities in his brain. Basically, this is like having a stopped up sink with the water still running. The blood left in there is going to cause pressure on the brain. So the Dr. is going to put a drainage cath in his brain to let the fluids drain out of the fluid cavities. This will only take about 15 minutes and is done bedside. Problems that could happen: once in the brain, it could cause another bleed. 2nd is infection setting up which could go straight to the brain. If this is not done, he will continue to get sleepier and sleepier until he falls into a coma. He's almost been weaned off meds to lower his blood pressure. He is stable on the blood pressure.

At 7pm eastern time 6pm cst, a mass of churches across the United States are gathering to have a prayer vigil on Tracy's behalf. We would be so honored to have you join with them and my family. Thank you to everyone who has and is praying!!!!

Please send this to everyone you know!!!

UPDATE: January 22nd, 1:20pm Central- Bill Bailey, spokesman for The Perrys, has announced that The Perrys intend to fulfill their personal appearances that are scheduled for this upcoming weekend. "Joseph Habedank and Bryan Walker be carrying on the tradition of great Southern Gospel music that Tracy and Libbi have become known for. Libbi will be staying at Tracy's side while talented friends will fill in for the time being. I want to encourage all of the friends of The Perrys—as well as all Southern Gospel fans—to come out and support The Perrys at their concerts and services this weekend in Maryville, Tennessee/Thomasville, North Carolina/Yakinville, North Carolina/Monroe, North Carolina."

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Update: January 22nd, 9am Central:

New CT scan showed increased bleeding. Concerned they may have to put him on vent if this starts effecting his breathing. Dr will be in in a little bit to update me more. His blood pressure is down by medicine.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Update: January 22nd, 3am Central- From Libbi Perry Stuffle's Facebook page:

Update on my precious Sweet Tracy. He has had a stroke. It's not from a clot but from bleeding. He has no movement on the right side. His speech you cannot understand. He however does understand us. He's in ICU and will be here several days. He will have another CT this morning around 8am or a little after. Here's what I am BEGGING you to help me pray: that the bleeding stops and his brain doesn't swell any more than what it is. He has minimal swelling now. And pray God will restore him 100%.

Tracy had just dropped me off at hospital so I could stay the night with our friend Nancy who had breast cancer surgery today. He got about a mile from hospital and whatever this is happened and he wrecked. Thank The Lord he was only a mile from the hospital. He tried to call EMTs himself, but somehow call Bill Bailey. Friends, I am really trying to stay strong I really am, but I really need a whole bunch of God's strength right now!!! All I know is to be totally honest with you! I am standing on God's Word that by HIS stripes we ARE healed, in the precious name of Jesus!!!
