Beau Dozier songwriter: "I am doing the best I can possibly be. I'm so
anxious to get out of here," the 32-year-old drummer said. "I was in
Georgia at the hospital over there and was scared to death to even get
on an airplane again, so I had Shanna and my father come out and meet
me and we took a bus back to L.A. I've just been in surgery after
surgery. I have third-degree burns basically from my feet up to my
waist and both hands. One of my hands has second-degree burns and one
has third-degree burns."
Barker said he's anxious to spend more time with his and Moakler's
children, Landon, 5, and Alabama, 2. "Shanna brought them down a
couple times, but not on the basis that I normally would [see them],"
he said. "Normally I wake up with them at six in the morning and take
them to school. I'm just taking this one day at a time and listening
to all the doctors' orders."
One big change that Barker has made since the accident is changing his
diet. He's broken with his vegetarian regimen in the interest of
helping his recovery. "Because I was a vegetarian, for my first three
surgeries, it was hard to get any of my grafts to take to my real
skin," he said. "I have such low levels of protein. I need protein
from food rather than just protein supplements. I changed my diet. I
would do anything I possibly could [to get better]. They said,
'There's a possibility you might heal faster if you do eat meat or
just change your eating habits.' So I did. I don't regret it at all,
because I feel so much better!"
