Phil Phillips Ongoing Health Issues – Mom Requesting Prayers

American Idol finalist, Phil Phillips was suspiciously absent from last week’s Ford commercial, which led some to speculate he might still be suffering from the health issued that plagued him early in the competition.  Phil’s mom confirms he’s still not feeling well and is asking for your prayers on her Facebook page:

“I have a special prayer request. Please stop and pray a special prayer for Phillip. He is in a lot of pain and I am sad about it. I just wish he felt good. I love him so much and wish I could be with him. He would appreciate the prayers too!”

Albany Uncovered, contacted Phil’s father, Donnie Phillips who said that, due to the hectic schedule, “contestants are getting very little sleep and it’s starting to take a toll on Phillip especially when combined with his ongoing kidney stone issues.”

Phil had a stent put in early in the competition to deal with his painful condition.

Sending some good thoughts out Phil’s way. He has a good shot at being the last person standing. I hope he stays healthy
