"Unfortunately, I caught this bug that everyone's got so I'll be out of commission for a few days, then I'll be back. Thanks for the support," a hoodied, raspy Bonds said in his post. 

In perhaps a wise move, Bonds did not make any reference to medication or drugs of any kind used to treat the illness.
