Ryan McCombs, frontman with Soil and formerly of Drowning Pool, is recovering in hospital after suffering a stroke.
In an update on his Facebook page McCombs has said that he has been able to eat and drink something for the first time since being hospitalised at the weekend. He also thanks his girlfriend Izzi for her quick actions in seeking medical attention.
“Just passed some tests that allowed me to have some food and water. First since Sunday,” he wrote.
“I have been hospitalized after having a stroke in my sleep Sunday night. Thanks to Izzi making me go to the hospital Monday morning, we caught it before my stupid brain made too much of a mess of me.”
“I’m already doing better but I’m warned it’ll be a bit of a road. The Angry Hobbit is a stubborn prick and I believe shit will right itself in no time. I mean hell, my stupid dumb right hand only made me take 15 minutes to write this…seriously.
“In great hands here and Izzi is keeping a protective eye.”
The band had just wrapped up touring on a bill with American Head Charge and Hed PE.
