‘I went for a walk, and I had a decent breakfast, and I haven’t felt like I was going to throw up today, so we’ll take it as a win.’

Hoppus said he wasn’t as nauseated after his most recent round of chemotherapy treatments, which began in March.

‘I’ve actually, like, watched movies and walked around and cleaned the house and hung out with my dogs,’ the Quarantine rocker – who boasts 3.8M social media followers – smiled.

‘Then I didn’t just feel like a poisoned electrified zombie leaned up against an electric fence like I did the rest, the past couple of rounds.’

And while Mark ‘can’t go anywhere right now’ his wife of 20 years, Skye Everly, attended a Los Angeles Dodgers game with a gal pal on Monday night.

‘I wanted to go to the Dodgers last night – I can’t,’ Hoppus – who’s fully vaccinated – lamented.

‘I want to go hang out with friends and go to a restaurant – I can’t. My white blood cell count is way too low for me to go out so I am stuck trying to get better. That’s alright, I’ll take it.’

The SoCal native announced his diagnosis last Wednesday, tweeting: ‘It sucks and I’m scared, and at the same time I’m blessed with incredible doctors and family and friends to get me through this.’

‘I still have months of treatment ahead of me, but I’m trying to remain hopeful and positive,’ Mark said in his statement.

‘Can’t wait to be cancer free and see you all at a concert in the near future. Love to you all.’

Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker told E! News that same day: ‘Mark is my brother and I love and support him. I will be with him every step of the way on stage and off and can’t wait for us to play together again soon.’
