After enduring numerous surgeries and going through most of the American Idol competition in pain, Phillip Phillips has finally endured what we hope is his last surgery. Phillip is out of the hospital now, after the six hour procedure was done last week. Phillip spoke with E!News and told them: “I’m out of the hospital and back to work! Looking forward to the future,” as he signed autographs for adoring fans – what a guy!
So now it’s lots of rest for the season 11 champ as he recovers and prepares himself for his full schedule. Phillip’s summer will be jam packed as his schedule includes being booked for all 45 shows. On July 6, Phillip is set to open the American Idols Live concert in Detroit, along with the season’s top 10 contestants. He certainly needs to get his rest now. Let’s hope that is the last of Phillip’s kidney issues.
