Legendary country star Ray Price announced that he had been hospitalized on Monday (May 13), and now his wife, Janie, has given fans an update on his condition.

She shared the following news via Facebook late Tuesday night (May 14):

Hello Everyone,
I promised Ray that I would keep all of you updated on his stay in the hospital this week.
Ray was admitted last Thursday night due to severe dehydration.
A medication he had to take for Post Radiation Syndrome caused him to have extreme diarrhea that resulted in loss of too much body fluid.
Dr. Red Duke just upgraded Rays condition to "GOOD AND IMPROVING DAILY". He is so much better today and is alert and talking.
We have to remain in hospital for a few more days until his strength is better.
Ray said to thank you all for your prayers. I am reading him your messages and I can tell you that he is moved by your love and concern for him.
So am I. Ray and I have been together for 45 years and I am not about to let go now!!!!.
I will return to keep you updated.
With Great Appreciation, Janie Price

The 87-year-old Country Music Hall of Famer, whose hits include 'For the Good Times,' 'Release Me' and 'Make the World Go Away,' was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year, but in February he announced that his cancer is in remission and he is undergoing physical therapy in the next phase of his treatment.

But he's been getting back to work; Pollstar lists three upcoming concerts for the unstoppable singer in June and July.
