"I hate planes," Barker, 32, tells Us Weekly. "My biggest fear ever is to be involved in a plane crash, so when that happened ... well, I'm just thankful to be alive. I'm just grateful to be here at all."
After being released from a hospital last week, Barker was transported to a burn center in Los Angeles. Still too afraid to fly cross-country, Barker traveled by bus with his father and ex-wife, Shanna Moakler.
"I am doing the best I can possibly be," Barker adds. "I'm so anxious to get out of here. 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. I'm trying to have a quick recovery and play the drums again and be able to hold my kids again."
Barker hopes to leave the L.A. hospital within two weeks.
