But we're happy to report that the baker seems to be in better condition now, according to his Instagram account. Citing stress and needing to take "better care" of himself as the culprit to the health scare.

The baker has become the premier maker of bread in South Florida, owning and operating a popular Wynwood restaurant along with supplying breads wholesale to different restaurants and markets around town.

No word as to when he might return to the job, but you can send him well wishes on his social media platforms. [Instagram]
