AceShowbiz - Travis Barker is ready to get back to work again after being hospitalized for "life-threatening" pancreatitis. The Blink-182 drummer was spotted at his recording studio just a couple of days after his hospital release.
In photos obtained by TMZ, the 46-year-old rocker was photographed behind the wheel of a Mercedes G-Wagon on Tuesday, July 5, heading into his recording studio in Calabasas, California. Apparently feeling much better, he was even seen greeting the studio operator with a friendly fist bump before heading inside.
According to the outlet, Travis, along with several other musicians, spent hours working, with his assistant leaving at one point to go on a coffee and food run to keep the crew sustained.
One day earlier, a source told The Sun that Travis has been discharged from the hospital. The so-called insider added that he's at home to "continue to recover with the support of his family on July 4th."
That same day, Travis was spotted out on a drive with his wife Kourtney Kardashian. The rocker looked reinvigorated with his 43-year-old reality star wife as they took a cruise in his vintage orange Chevy CST pickup truck.
Travis previously confirmed in an Instagram Story a recent colonoscopy might have triggered the illness and he was admitted last Tuesday, June 28. He was taken to West Hills Hospital before being transferred to Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, closely followed by his wife.
Later, Travis himself assured his fans that he's doing fine. "I went in for an endoscopy Monday [June 27] feeling great. But after dinner, I developed excruciating pain and have been hospitalized ever since," he penned in an Instagram Story. "During the endoscopy, I had a very small polyp removed right in a very sensitive area, usually handled by specialists, which unfortunately damaged a critical pancreatic drainage tube. This resulted in severe life threatening pancreatitis. I am so very very grateful that with intensive treatment I am currently much better."
As for Kourtney, she said that Travis' hospitalization was "scary and emotional." She wrote via Instagram, "Travis and I went in for a routine endoscopy together and he ended up with severe, life-threatening pancreatitis."
"I am so grateful to God for healing my husband, for all of your prayers for him and for us, for the overwhelming outpouring of love and support. I am so touched and appreciative," added "The Kardashians" star. "I am so so thankful to our specialists, doctors, and nurses at Cedars Sinai for taking such wonderful care of my husband and me during our stay."
