“In November, Mel made the trip from Nashville back to his home state of Florida. Â He is currently at home in Ocala where he is being cared for by nurses as needed and continued physical therapy. Â His vitals are good and his sense of humor is very much intact. Â He is trying to get stronger and we are hopeful that will be the case now that he’s back at home. Â He misses all of his loyal fans and is beyond thankful for all of the well wishes. Â Your continued thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated.”
