"Hi guys," August says from his hospital bed. "As you can probably tell I'm in the hospital. So, here's the stitch. I woke up one day and wasn't able to walk. I couldn't feel my legs and my doctor ended up admitting me into the hospital." We're doing a bunch of tests and they're saying I have some nerve damage going on throughout my body," August explains. "You know, it's like my immune system went on vacation. So, I'm just waiting on it to come back and we can get together and it can do what it do, man."
