Kris Allen had the last surgery on his wrist Friday morning. The American Idol season 8 winner tweeted, “Goin in for the last surgery on the wrist today. Again I apologize in advance for anything I say and do afterwards today. Ya just never know.”
Along with the message, he tweeted a photo of his IV with the caption, “Needles are fun.”
DOES THAT LOOK LIKE FUN TO YOU? I rest my case. But fear not, Kris’s wife Katy tweeted a happy update, “Surgery went great! He is in recovery now.”
It’s been quite an ordeal for the Allen family since a serious car accident on January 1 of this year did some major damage to his wrist. An initial surgery after the accident didn’t heal correctly, and needed to be followed up by two more procedures. His wrist will probably not come back 100%, but it won’t keep him from playing guitar, or catch with his kid.
Yes, Kris’ wife Katy is due to deliver a baby boy, the couple will name Oliver, in the coming month! Hooray.
Before his surgery, Kris recorded a song to thank his street team, Little Pawns, for all the work the fans did helping to promote his recent Out Alive tour. “On Our Way” is from the singer’s pre-Idol album, Brand New Shoes. It’s the first time he’s performed the song to a post-Idol audience. Check it out.
