Will Casey Abrams end up in the hospital again this week? The "American Idol" contestant tweeted this afternoon that he has ulcerative colitis.
WebMd describes the condition as a type of "inflammatory bowel disease." It apparently affects the colon and rectum. Um, OK. I think that's enough detail for now.
Remember, Casey missed last week's results show because he was hospitalized. It was reportedly his second hospitalization of the season.
Never miss a local story.
"American Idol" airs 8-10 p.m. tonight on Fox. Contestants will sing songs from their birth years. I'll blog live throughout the show.
