The family of 99.7 WWTN’s Phil Valentine Monday morning posted on social media that the conservative talk radio host is gravely ill, and it will take a miracle for him to survive. He remains on life support at Williamson Medical Center, in need of ECMO, but not stable enough for transport. In addition to COVID-19, he is dealing with pneumonia, a secondary infection, irregular heart rate, AFIB, kidney failure, and uncontrolled blood pressure. The family has removed all health updates from public view.
UPDATE: “fighting for his life”
Conservative talk-radio show host Phil Valentine remains hospitalized with COVID-19 at Williamson Medical Center, just outside of Nashville. His brother says Phil is “fighting for his life”, and this is likely to be resolved in a time frame of weeks, not days. The family is calling on everyone to please get vaccinated.
