Last Thursday night didn’t exactly go as planned for deadmau5 after he was hospitalized for a severe lymph node infection.

However, he was determined not to miss the Red Bull event he was slotted to play in Miami that night, so he “literally snuck out of the hospital and hopped on a jet” – and then returned to the hospital afterwards.

You can see his recount of the events in his Tweets and Instagram posts below.

so my lymph nodes have swollen up to about the size of golf balls. so much for sleeping tonight :/
