Casey Kasem in Critical Condition THR
Casey Kasem is reportedly in critical but stable condition at a hospital in Washington state, according to The Hollywood Reporter, which cites the famed DJ's daughter Kerri and representatives for the hospital.
St. Anthony Hospital spokesman Scott Thompson said in a statement released Thursday: "Mr. Kasem is receiving wound care, intravenous antibiotic therapy, blood pressure support medication as well as treatment for his pain. Mr. Kasem is alert, appears comfortable at this time."
Kasem was admitted Sunday and was receiving treatment for an infected bed sore, which was reportedly present when he entered the hospital.
"Members of Casey's family, including his brother, are flying to Washington to be with him, but this doesn't necessarily mean that his health is failing, Danny Deraney, Kerri's rep, told CNN. Deraney confirmed to Reuters that two of his three children were by Casey's side, with the third en route," THR reports.
As we reported previously, Kasem's family is in a feud over issues such as visitation. The radio personality has been bedridden for a period of time and has Lewy Body Disease.
"A message on the Deraney PR Twitter account on Thursday said Casey was in 'stable condition.' CNN notes that a patient can be listed as both critical and stable if his or her condition is poor but not deteriorating further," THR reports.
