Ric Flair isn't out of the woods yet, but he has taken a turn for the better.
In a series of tweets posted by Legacy Talent CEO Melinda Morris Zanoni on Saturday, it was revealed the former wrestler is "awake, comminucating and progressing" after suffering from "multiple organ problems" and undergoing surgery last week.
Happy 2 report @RicFlairNatrBoy is awake, communicating & progressing..but there are complications so needs rest for the 1st time in 40 yrs— MelindaMorrisZanoni (@LegacyTalentCEO) August 19, 2017
He did cut a promo on a nurse yesterday so anyone that knows @RicFlairNatrBoy knows that's a very, very good sign— MelindaMorrisZanoni (@LegacyTalentCEO) August 19, 2017
On behalf of @RicFlairNatrBoy THANK YOU 4 the outpouring of prayers & well wishes (altho the offers 4 a kidney seemed a little excessive :)— MelindaMorrisZanoni (@LegacyTalentCEO) August 19, 2017
Flair, 68, was admitted to the hospital for "routine monitoring" on Aug 12 but was later placed in a medical coma. The WWE personality had heart surgery on Tuesday and has reportedly been dealing with a number of medical issues, including an undisclosed infection.
