Travis Barker’s family thanks fans for ‘love and prayer’ during hospitalization

Travis Barker’s family has shared new updates during his hospitalization with pancreatitis.

The 16-year-old daughter of the Blink-182 Alabama drummer has shared a new photo of him since his diagnosis — an inflammation of the pancreas — was made public on Wednesday.

“Thank you guys for all the prayers and love,” she wrote on Instagram along with a photo of their hands side by side. “I appreciate and love you all.”

It is unclear when the photo was taken, as Travis is not wearing a hospital gown. An earlier photo Alabama — whose mother is Shanna Moakler — posted on TikTok showed her father in a hospital bed. A representative of the musician did not respond to Yahoo Entertainment’s request for comment.

Travis’ stepdaughter Atiana De La Hoya, 23, also shared an update on Instagram.

“Thank you for the outpouring of love and prayers sent to us at this time. It is heard, felt and appreciated,” wrote Atiana, the daughter of Moakler and boxer Oscar De La Hoya.

Travis, 46, has been at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in LA since Tuesday. Kardashian, whom he married in May, has comforted him.

Kourtney won’t leave his side, says a source People magazine.

Kardashian was “concerned” Tuesday when Travis was wheeled into the hospital on a stretcher. “They both were. Travis had a bad stomachache and could barely walk.’

The insider said he receives “the best care at Cedars,” with his doctors focusing on pain management while assessing the extent of his condition and devising a modified diet for him.

According to Johns Hopkins, pancreatitis can be sudden (acute) or persistent (chronic). Symptoms range from severe abdominal pain that can spread to the back or chest, nausea, vomiting, fever and rapid heart rate, among others. It can cause serious problems or be fatal in the most severe cases.

In the more manageable cases, a patient is usually in the hospital for a few days, receiving IV (intravenous) fluids, pain relievers, and medications that fight bacterial infections (antibiotics). If it is mild, patients can consume clear liquids or a low-fat diet. If it’s severe, a patient may not eat or drink for several days to allow the pancreas — which makes enzymes to help break down food — to rest.
