Fox 8's Stefani Schaefer gave a quick update Tuesday on her husband's condition. She said that Roger is "still fighting," but the last few days were "not so good."

After her co-host Wayne Dawson reminded her that people everywhere are praying for her, she made the following request: "Pray for Rog. ... When he's good, I'm good. When he's not, I'm not. ... I just need all those prayers for him."





All along, Stefani has been updating her Facebook fan page to let everyone know how Roger is doing. What follows is her complete post from Tuesday:

"I am calling on all my Prayer Warriors. Yesterday at the hospital, the nurses said they couldn't wake up Roger... they waited until we got there. His sister, brother-in-law, mother and I came in... we couldn't wake him either. There is concern he had slipped back into a coma. We spent the day with him, and a few times, he opened his eyes.. but it was very brief. His doctors ordered a CT scan and several tests. Last night he started fevering and I got the call at 3am that all sorts of things were going wrong. He is fighting an infection, they are trying to find the source to help them treat it. These setbacks are like getting punched and kicked in the gutt all over again. Please continue to pray for Roger... I am begging you to help him fight through this. Roger is a fighter and God is a healer.... please help us fight. I will keep you posted. I am planning on anchoring the 9am show this morning and going straight to the hospital... I let you know how he is doing. CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH."
