Sum 41's Deryck Whibley Hospitalized For Liver and Kidney Failure (A Top Story)

On Monday Sum 41's Deryck Whibley Hospitalized For Liver and Kidney Failure was a top story. Here is the recap: Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley revealed in an online posting that he was hospitalized after he "collapsed to the ground unconscious" and his "liver and kidney's collapsed" due to alcohol abuse.

Whibley posted the following message on his official website on Friday (May 16th) under the heading of 'Rock Bottom': "Hey everyone, it's Deryck here. Sorry I've been so m.i.a. lately, but I've been very sick in the hospital for a month and was pretty sick for a few weeks leading up to my trip to the hospital. The reason I got so sick is from all the hard boozing I've been doing over the years. It finally caught up to me.

"I was drinking hard every day, until one night I was sitting at home, poured myself another drink around midnight and was about to watch a movie when all of a sudden I didn't feel so good. I then collapsed to the ground unconscious. My fiancι got me rushed to the hospital where they put me into the intensive care unit.

"I was stuck with needles and I.V.'s all over. I was completely sedated the FIRST WEEK. When I finally woke up the next day I had no idea where I was. My mum and step dad were standing over me. I was so freaked out. My liver and kidney's collapsed on me. 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. I'm not preaching or anything but just always drink responsibly. I didn't, and look where that got me. (I never thought I would ever say that! haha).

"Anyway, I have my passion and inspiration back for writing music. I already have a few song ideas for new songs. Soon it will be time to start making an album and getting back to touring again. See you all sometime! there will be more posts again so stay up to date, friends."

The post album included a photo of him in a hospital bed. See it - here.
