Christian singer Carman Licciardello, better known to fans as Carman, is suffering from internal bleeding following an operation for the removal of a hiatal hernia. Carman had the operation on Jan. 19, his birthday.
"URGENT!!!!" "We need you to stop right now and pray! Carman had a minor surgery last week. Recovery was not going well and his temperature continued to rise. They discovered it was caused by internal bleeding and had to do another surgery last night to fix that," reads a message that was posted on Licciardello's Facebook page Monday.
According to the message, the legendary singer's temperature had been going up and down, causing him to get pneumonia.
"His kidneys and liver are not working fully. He needs a touch from the Lord right now!! Please pray for a complete healing for Carman," the post added.
"For some reason, no one knows why, my blood pressure dropped to 66/43 and kept falling. It's usually 135/89. I woke up from the anesthesia and saw nine doctors and nurses standing around my bed buzzing about, deeply concerned. They worked for hours to get it going the other way," Carman added. He went on to say that he needed a blood transfusion and an intravenous drip.
The popular entertainer has spent the past six years sharing his testimony after he survived an intense battle with cancer.
