The sad story surrounding CASEY KASEM could come to a conclusion soon, as the radio star is in critical condition at a hospital in western WASHINGTON state.
SCOTT THOMPSON, a spokesman for ST. ANTHONY HOSPITAL, told CNN in a written statement that, "Mr. KASEM is alert and appears comfortable at this time," and added that KASEM, "is receiving antibiotics through IVs, blood pressure support medicine and care for his bed sores. Any further updates on Mr. KASEM's condition will be at the discretion and approval of his children."
DANNY DERANEY, speaking for KASEM's daughter KERRI KASEM, told CNN that members of the family, including CASEY KASEM's brother, were flying to WASHINGTON. When asked if they feared CASEY KASEM might die, DERANEY said it could be his last moments or he could get better. DERANEY clarified that he never meant that KASEM's health was failing as was reported by several media outlets.
