From The Crimson Tide Sports Network: On behalf of his wife Christy Stewart, we would like to update everyone on the health of Chris Stewart, who is in the need of prayers at this time.

As many of you know, Chris underwent successful heart bypass surgery in August. His recovery was heading in the right direction but unfortunately there have been some setbacks. The good news is that Chris’ heart is strong but he has been battling a serious infection as well as some additional side effects that have him back in the hospital. While Chris’ health is steadily improving, he still has a long road ahead. We’re so thankful that he is surrounded by a tremendous medical team and the doctors remain optimistic for a full recovery. We can tell you that Chris is extremely grateful for all of the love and support that he’s received from so many people. As many of you know, he’s dealt with some health issues this past year-and-a-half and we believe that all the prayers, support and words of encouragement have sincerely helped him throughout his recovery. That is why we chose to inform you of Chris’ current situation. Our family believes strongly in the power of prayer, so we ask that you please pray for Chris so that he continues to progress and heal in order to help him make a full and speedy recovery. God bless you all and thank you for your support!
