Open Letter From Melita
On Monday, November 9, Todd became severely ill from abdominal pains he had been complaining of for several days. He was brought to the doctor where initial tests showed a dangerous combination of drugs in his system. The doctor insisted Todd be admitted into a rehab center.
As many of you know, Todd has always taken drugs and drank pretty hard. He often jokes about this. What many of you don't know is how serious this has been and how long it has gone on. Privately, Todd has talked for years of wanting to quit, so maybe this is a blessing. He is doing well and getting stronger everyday.
We are both so grateful for your support and I will be sure to let you all know how he's doing as he gets better.
When I spoke to Todd yesterday and told him I would be writing to you all, he asked that I tell you how sorry he is for anyone that had tickets to any of the cancelled shows.
Again, thank you for your continued support and Todd looks forward to getting back out there as soon as he can.
