Austin Carlile (ex-Of Mice & Men) has offered a health update regarding his battle with Marfan Syndrome in a series of tweets. You can read a compiled statement of those below. On another note, he also confirmed that has new music in the works.
Carlile said the following:
“Spent the past 8 months recovering from last Octobers spinal tears that forced me to leave band… during the past 3 months was receiving a series of 24-34 injections in my spine, hips, & legs every 3 weeks. As well as weekly IV treatments… Was making progress until earlier in June when I began losing feeling & use of my legs… That was what ultimately hospitalized me in Costa Rica, then led me here to Stanford to find out what exactly was going on… Has been tough… but I am tougher. Has been the biggest obstacle to overcome… but God is bigger. This is the longest I’ve gone in 10 years w/out playing music/touring. The wound stays fresh, a massive piece of me ripped away & missing… But honestly the part I’ve missed the most is YOU. My dream/journey wouldn’t have been possible w/out all of you in the first place x. I HAVE been working on new music though… one of the only things that has kept me sane…”
