Last month, we reported that country music legend Willie Nelson had cancelled his upcoming tour because of a mysterious health issue. Now, he has finally come clean about what is going on with his health, and he needs our prayers.
“Over the years I’ve smoked a lot of cigarettes and I’ve had emphysema and pneumonia four or five times, so my lungs were really screwed up, and I had heard that this stem-cell operation would be good for them. So I said, ‘Well, I’m gonna try it out,'” the 82 year-old icon revealed, according to Q Political.
While we’re relieved to hear that it’s not something even more serious, surgery for someone over 80 is no laughing matter ever. We’ll be praying for Nelson to make a full recovery, and we can’t wait to see him back on tour!
