For over 30-years, Bill Miller’s music and performances have fostered healing and positive growth for so many lives around the world – and it seems that many of you are channeling back that energy and mindful prayer back to him. After yesterday’s surgery, Bill Miller is resting quietly, and is in stable condition. We have been sharing the outpouring of prayer messages his fans and friends have offered – about 500,000 of them, so far – and Bill is overwhelmingly grateful for your support. We expect his doctors to report to us later today, and will share an update at that time.
Thank you all for your continued love, support, and healing prayers for our dear brother, Bill.
Having just conferred with medical staff at this late hour, we want to inform Bill’s many fans and friends of his current condition. Bill has had a rough day, recovering from yesterday’s surgery and other ill affects. He is sleeping now, but doctors will attempt a second surgery, specifically on his heart, tomorrow (Thursday) morning around 9am, Central Time. Although Bill has always been a warrior for the Great Spirit, he is weak and we ask for your collective prayers and healing thoughts for the next round of surgery he will soon undergo. We will post more updates as information is available.
