Carolyn revealed that the doctors were still keeping Tom in the ICU.
‘He’s under heavy medication and not out of the woods quite yet. But we will take each precious day and continue to trust in the Lord’s plan for him. Come what may, and in love,” she said, as revealed on Marie’s website.
Tom, now 70 years old, recently underwent quadruple bypass surgery.
Three days after the procedure, his brother, Donny Osmond, took to Instagram to share a sweet photo of his brother and a heartwarming message.
He also requested thoughts and prayers for Tom – who Donny said, at the time, was fighting for his life.
Along with the childhood photo he posted of him and Tom, he wrote on the caption, ‘He is on life support right now and fighting to hang on. It’s been an emotional and challenging few days for all of us, so I hope you’ll understand the radio silence from my end.’
Marie also posted a sweet message for her brother on Instagram.
Praising her brother, Marie wrote, ‘I’ve always seen his enthusiasm through his Christ-like [heart]. He just has a way of warming hearts with his big smile and tender hugs. He has such great love for all people, including strangers.’
Tom, much like his eldest brother Virl, is hearing impaired. Although, Tom also performed with his siblings for the family’s 70’s and 80’s TV specials.
