Vicente Fernandez was reported as “serious but stable” and is being treated in the Intensive Care Unit in Guadalajara, Mexico.

“With the authorization of the Fernandez Family, the treating medical team informs that the current health condition of Mr. Vicente Fernandez remains serious but stable concerning his vital signs,” reads the new text sent to the media.

“He continues to be dependent on ventilatory support due to poor respiratory effort. As for his brain functions, these are intact,” they added. The singer remains immobile as a result of the surgery, something that could hopefully change with rehabilitation.

“We expect a progressive recovery of mobilization. From his immediate post-surgery with early physical and pulmonary rehabilitation. He remains with minimal sedation and at the moment his system‘s without alterations,” the statement read. They also thanked everyone for their prayers for the health of the Charro de Huentitán.

For now, Alejandro Fernandez‘s father remains immobile due to the surgery, although it is uncertain if he has pins or plates in his neck. Due to the operation, it would be complicated to move him to a new hospital. Outlets began to report that the singer was being transferred to a hospital in Houston, Texas, where he would be treated by various specialists. However Despierta América quickly denied the reports. “It is information that has bothered the family a lot because they say it is incorrect. They even say it is rude to the doctors who have done everything possible to maintain Don Vicente’s health,” they said.

He explained the family is quite worried and asked for prayers for his father to get out of the hospital soon.
