Better Him Than Me, I Guess

I came across this today at “Travis Barker Updates Blog From Hospital Bed” where he is “detailing his recovery.” I, briefly, commented on him and his situation in a previous post, a couple, or three weeks ago? 

In my post I wrote about Travis having just been involved in a rather serious plane crash in Columbia, South Carolina, the Friday night before. Where 4 other passengers in the plane perished. So en route to another, possibly not as serious point, I highlighted what happened to him and wished him well.

In the post it said many things, but most confusing was;

“Every step seems huge at this point, and Im doing EVERYTHING I can possibly do to get back to my kids. Yes, I did start eating meat again, but if it helps me to be home holding my little humans sooner, then its all worth it…” 

He starts off fine. I can totally relate. But if by “home” he meant an afterlife I can’t say I have any serious objections to that logic, aside from the obvious, of course. But seriously what the hell kind of advice is eating meat as a way to heal? And heal quicker? Truly bizarre…

Never had I been encouraged to dig on flesh to aid my recovery. If I had, I, honestly, can’t say I knew enough about nutrition to fight bad advice. But I do now. And I can see his doctors aren’t doing him any favors by talking their shit. And he isn’t doing himself any favors by following it.

Better him than me, I guess…
