Casey Kasem In Critical Condition

Posted: Updated:
PORT ORCHARD, Wash. (AP) - Ailing radio personality Casey Kasem is in critical condition with an infected bedsore at a Washington state hospital, as his daughter and wife head to court for another hearing in a dispute over his care.
    
St. Anthony Hospital in Gig Harbor said Thursday the 82-year-old Kasem is receiving care for a serious pressure ulcer he had when he was admitted Sunday.  The hospital declined further comment Friday.
    
Meanwhile, a hearing is scheduled later Friday in Kitsap County Superior Court in the dispute between Kasem's daughter Kerri Kasem and his wife Jean Kasem.
    
Court records say Jean Kasem has been in control of her husband's medical care and has controlled access to him, blocking three of his children from seeing him in recent months.
    
However, a judge granted visits to Kerri Kasem and she brought a doctor. She has said her father has a form of dementia.
    
Kasem gained fame with his Top 40 radio music countdown shows.
