We knew that Of Mice & Men had to cancel the last few dates of their tour after singer Austin Carlile had some health issues. Checking in from the hospital via Twitter, the singer gave an update in which he mentioned that he’ll be transferred to Stanford University. Here’s his full statement, which he spread out over the course of eight tweets:
“Thank you for the get well wishes everyone. I’m transferring to Stanford University this week to be in care of my cardiologists & marfans specialists until my health situation at hand is under control. It has been a long past few days, and the ones following will be just as much of a struggle but I can do this. And I believe that whole heartedly.. If I believe in it. So should you. I’m sorry to anyone who missed the last two shows of our tour. I would have much rather been there than a hospital bed, I assure you. Love to everyone, band, family, you. I’m never giving up. Thanks for being there for me. Waking up over & over in the middle of the night, or the nurses helping me pee, reading the tweets help. <3″
Carlile had to have heart surgery back in 2010. Here’s hoping whatever he has happening to him this time works out for the best.
