On last night’s Idol results we found that one of our favorite contestants, the phenomenal Casey Abrams, was in the hospital yet again for the same reason he was admitted earlier in the competition.
Abrams suffers from ulcerative colitis, a condition which is probably only worsened by the intense stress of the competition. As of now, it looks likely that Abrams will return. He’s been tweeting hopeful messages for his fans. After his successful blood transfusion, he said, “Hey guys, thanks for the well wishes, I got some nice fresh blood in me and feeling better. People at Idol & Cedars are treatin me real good,” and later, “My health is always first, but this is my dream, I’m going to keep fighting to stay in.”
There’s been no official word on whether or not Casey will be back next Wednesday, but it seems like he’s not ready to let the chance on Idol go so I think we can all rest easy for now.
