Mike Posner Learning to Walk After Rattlesnake Bite

Mike Posner is on the road to recovery after getting bitten by a rattlesnake.

The “Be As You Are” singer is already taking his first steps with some slight help, of course. Read on for more on Mike Posner Rattlesnake Bite …

CelebNHealth247.com that the singer and songwriter posted an encouraging video of himself using a walker in the hospital he’s currently being treated .

Mike Posner posted the video above with the caption:

From 24 miles per day to using this walker to get to bathroom. I’m on my way back. Gonna rebuild with patience and equanimity.

What is so crazy is that Posner is literally relearning how to walk again via physical therapy.

Despite his struggle and rehab, Mike Posner made a shout out to all who helped and supported him during this time of need.

He said:

HUGE shout outs to Stephanie, Fergie, Bo, Angie, Eddie, mike, dr black, dr van Birmingham, dr Gordon, dr Shapiro, Natalie, carol, Megan, Jeremy, and my whole family in ICU. Molly and her husband from PT are gonna come help me walk again tomorrow. KEEP GOING.

On Wednesday Mike told us he was bitten while making his way across Colorado, after racking up 16 miles and looking to log 8 more.

The baby rattler jumped out of nowhere on his path and clamped down on Mike’s leg, which sent him to the hospital.

He wrote:

Whatup doe!!! Crazy day yesterday! I had just crushed 16 miles and was going for 8 more when I got bit by a baby rattlesnake! ? That venom is no joke! I got to the hospital and got the anti-venom in time. Shout outs to G and Mike from the chopper team ? and Bo and Cassie and Whitney (my nurses). I’ll be here a few days and will not be able to walk for several weeks but enjoying the AC and the nice bed, haven’t had those in a while Hahahaha! Can’t wait to get back on The Walk! KEEP GOING!!!!!!

Luckily, Mike got the anti-venom he needed in time, but the snake definitely left its mark … causing his left foot to swell up near his ankle area — and the damage was pretty gnarly.

Mike posted this footage of himself being taken in by paramedics following the bite.

Mike’s been on the road since April and was aiming to get to California by October — all to honor the deaths of his father and Avicii. He’s also released tunes along the way.

He will continue his “WALK ACROSS AMERICA” once h is in better health.
