Travis Barker is on the mend, thank goodness! The Blink-182 drummer was spotted outside a recording studio in LA, solo for the first time since his hospitalization for life-threatening pancreatitis, on July 6th. The 46-year-old appeared to be in great spirits and great health as he wore a white tank top that showed off his sleeves of tattoos, black sunglasses, a thick chain necklace and black jeans. Travis appeared to be taking a phone call in the pics that captured him leaving the recording studio, more than a week after he was rushed to the hospital on June 28th.
These pics come the day after Travis first returned to the recording studio following his health scare. On June 5th, the rocker was spotted behind the wheel of a Mercedes G-Wagon on Tuesday, heading into a Calabasas recording studio, where he was photographed greeting the studio operator with a friendly fist bump. This back to work moment came after Travis was released from the hospital ahead of the Fourth of July holiday. He went on to spend the holiday with his wife Kourtney Kardashian and her daughter Penelope, 9, and son Reign, 7, in the sun on a beach.
The photos from Kourtney and Travis’ relaxing July 4th were their first social media uploads since taking to the platform on Saturday, July 2nd, to give fans an update on Travis’ hospitalization. “I went in for an endoscopy Monday feeling great,” Trav wrote via Instagram Stories at the time. “But after dinner, I developed excruciating pain and have been hospitalized ever since. 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,” he continued, calling himself “very grateful” for the treatment he received.
“I am currently much better,” Travis concluded, and by the looks of the new pics of him at the studio, it seems he is definitely on the mend and feeling good!
