An update has emerged on wrestling legend ‘Superstar’ Billy Graham, real name Eldridge Wayne Coleman, who is now back in hospital.
On January 11, Coleman’s wife Valerie revealed on Facebook that Coleman had ‘coded’ during a procedure. When a patient is described as ‘coded’, it generally means that they have had a cardiac arrest.
Coleman left the ICU on January 16 and was transferred to the PCU, the Progressive Care Unit.
Per a new update from Valerie, following a brief release, Coleman is now back in hospital.
The following health update was shared on the Billy Graham Facebook page:
Fans and friends, the following are condition reports I have received from Billy’s wife Valerie. Please consider contributing to their gofundme; today is the last day their insurance will cover the cost of the rehab center. They will now have to pay 200 a day out of pocket. Thanks everyone, and God bless.
“Please pray…they have called an ambulance to take Wayne back to the Mayo…the nurse clean them dressing on his pic line this morning and apparently didn’t do something right because now it’s coming out.
I know that God has him and he is under the Lords protection 🙏🙏🙏”
So the first procedure took place at 3am but was unsuccessful. They scheduled him another type of procedure to insert the pic line for 7am but it was delayed… we were both beyond exhausted but God and is infinite mercy was on us once again! They just got him back in his room about an hour ago with a pic line successfully placed! 🙏♥️
They said the way the original pic came out could have killed him… but our Lord had other plans♥️
And last but not least….some of his hearing has returned!!!!!!
Yes I have to talk loudly and very very close to his ears but he can hear me for the first time in almost 2 months👏👏👏👏👏🙏🙏🙏♥️♥️♥️ I am so grateful and blessed to have you all in my life 🥰
That would be great. I start paying the $200 a day tomorrow. Thanks Mike ♥️🙏 we just got back to the nursing facility”
Coleman is recognised as the sixth man ever to win the WWE Championship (WWWF Heavyweight Championship), holding the title for 296 days between 1977-1978. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by Triple H in 2004.
We wish Coleman a safe and healthy recovery.
