While in the hospital, he updated fans on his condition, saying, “Thanks for being there for me. Waking up over and over in the middle of the night, or the nurses helping me pee, reading the tweets help.” He also revealed that he would later be transferred to Stanford University in order to be under the supervision of specialists.

He was released June 21.
