Deryck Whibley Posts New Photo, Promises to Be 'Back out on Stage Before You Know It'


Deryck Whibley is on the mend.

A week after posting disturbing photos of himself in the hospital and writing that “hard boozing finally caught up to me,” the Sum 41 rocker, 34, seems to be healing well.

“I just wanted to thank you all so much for sending gifts and all of the compassion and support you have shown me,” he blogged on Saturday.

“It really means a lot to me in this time of recovery. I will be better soon and back out on stage before you know it.”

The musician, who was married to Avril Lavigne until their 2009 divorce, still looked frail in an updated photo shared to Facebook.

“My liver and kidney’s collapsed on me,” he wrote in the original post. “Needless to say it scared me straight. I finally realized I can’t drink anymore. If I have one drink the [docs] say I will die. Anyway I have my passion and inspiration back for writing music.”
