Funny: He also shared a look at a note that talked about a Speedo
So proud of @smashingdiy and @iamstevelewis!! I’ll post about that below To shed some light on why I was MIA…
“On Sunday I hit the red carpet for @barbiethemovie, on Monday I flew to Colorado to start filming in Breckinridge and on Tuesday morning I woke up at 4am and could barely breathe.
‘It turns out that the sore throat I’ve had for the last month was actually an abscess that had grown so large that it was blocking my airway. The next thing I knew, I was intubated and transferred to the ICU in Denver.
“On Wednesday they operated on me and yesterday afternoon they released me from the ICU.”
He then thanked the ‘incredible staff’ at St. Anthony’s in Lakewood, CO and Summit Health in Frisco for taking such good care of him.
‘A great reminder to LISTEN to your body when it tells you something #justhappytobehere.
“Plus, even through heavy sedatives, it’s nice to see I was still in the right frame of mind… (pic 4) #speedosforlife.”
