Pam Tillis is asking for prayers for her father, country music legend Mel Tillis.  On her Facebook page yesterday, Tillis called her dad a trooper, but said, “Dad is not healing as quickly as we would like.  We ask for your continued prayers and we’ll update everyone soon.”  It was revealed earlier this month that the elder Tillis was in the hospital recovering from colon surgery.  Mel Tillis is 83-years-old.
