Ric Flair’s fiancé Wendy Barlow has posted an update on what is going on and what exactly caused him to be hospitalized over the weekend. She cleared up some erroneous news going around and said that while he did get surgery, it was not colon surgery. She also said that Flair was actually hospitalized on Friday night and not Saturday morning, as first reported.
She wrote the following on her personal Facebook account:
Just want to give an update to my friends and Family as I have been unable to talk on the phone without crying and just feel shocked over events….I took Ric to the hospital Friday night with Severe Abdominal pain. From that moment on it all seemed like a nightmare…multiple Organ problems. Not to go into too many details I want everyone to know he still needs Prayers as he is still in Critical Condition….And No he did not have Colon Surgery…It was another Surgery! I don’t know how the Media comes up with their stories. I have been by his side since Friday and will continue to make sure his getting the best care possible. Thanks for all of the support and Love.
The stories about Flair getting colon surgery came from what was said on long-time friend Gene Okerlund’s social media accounts. I am sure that Gene meant well and did not mean to cause any confusion.
We send along our best wishes to the Flair family and everyone is pulling for him. We will pass along more updates as they become available. Click here for the latest on Ric Flair.
