    improvement.” Travis’ doctors are speaking publicly for the first time since
    he was admitted — first to Baylor Medical Center at McKinney, then The Heart
    Hospital Baylor Plano. Their remarks come one day after Travis’ sister-in-law
    said he had heart surgery , only to be contradicted by his Nashville-based
