T.G. Sheppard hospitalized again

The 68-year-old singer, real name Billy Neal Browder, was first admitted to a Nashville, Tennessee medical center with a bladder infection in October (12).

In a post on Facebook.com, his partner Kelly Lang wrote, "The bladder infection... is very hard to treat. That being said, it is the reason for his still being in the Critical Care Unit. I feel that he is getting better, but certainly not great."

Sheppard was later discharged and now he is being treated again since the infection has spread into his blood stream.

On Tuesday (06Nov12) Lang added, "Without going in to too much detail, TG has been admitted into the hospital again with (a) severe blood infection. It is very serious. We need prayers."
