"To all reading this I would like to say thank you for standing by me through my recovery. This will be difficult physically, emotionally and financially and I'm grateful to have your support as I go through it," he continued.

Carrabba added that he would continue to support the Black Lives Matter movement during his recovery and time away from social media.

"I have not lost sight of the social issues at hand and even in the condition I'm in I find it important to state that I stand with Black Lives Matter," he said. "In the near future it is likely I will no be able to follow the news as much as I normally would. If you don't hear from me on critical social issues I trust that you will know where I stand."
