The past statement of Mike Portnoy:

“Can’t tell you how grateful I am having my little man sitting here in my lap…he’s slowly recovering, getting lots of rest (& love!)…biggest difficulty is keeping him from going at his stitches as he HATES wearing the cone/tube…

But the biopsy results were the best we could’ve hoped for: Stage 1/verrrry early Stage 2…which means we don’t have to do chemo and we just have to keep an eye on any future lumps.

So sad I have to leave him to go back on tour on Tuesday…but I am so grateful he is recovering and also grateful that I happened to be home during this difficult time.”

Today, Mike Portnoy shared a new special video of himself with his sweet friend Mickey on Instagram and made a statement about the last status of it. Frankly, it was looking better than last week.

In the statement, Mike Portnoy has announced sad news about Mickey which is he must go to abroad due to new live performances. Apparently, they will not see each other for a few days.

Here’s the last statement of Mike:

“It’s never easy leaving the family to go back on tour, but this one is especially hard… I always joke that I miss Mickey the most when I’m gone, but there is some truth to it as I can talk & text w Marlene, Melody, and Max when I’m gone and they KNOW why I’m away and that I’ll be coming back…but Mickey doesn’t necessarily understand that…😞

Let’s all just keep rooting for a full recovery and I’ll get back home to my little guy ASAP 🙏🐶💕 @mickey_portnoy.”
