“I got to the hospital and got the anti-venom in time,” he continued. “Shout outs to G and Mike from the chopper team and Bo and Cassie and Whitney (my nurses). I’ll be here a few days and will not be able to walk for several weeks but enjoying the AC and the nice bed, haven’t had those in a while Hahahaha!”

The message comes alongside a video of the singer being wheeled through a hospital.

He ends the message saying that he plans on continuing his walk though, commenting: “Can’t wait to get back on The Walk! KEEP GOING!!!!!!”
