My eyes and ears always perk up when I notice “diabetes in the wild.” While watching American Idol last night I noticed the DexCom case clipped to a guy’s guitar strap. (Though I think he’s the only person I’ve ever seen that wears the included case.)
Adam Lasher is the nephew of Carlos Santana and sang an original song while playing guitar with a broken thumb, something our family can appreciate because Q has played guitar and piano with a broken arm and, most recently, tried to play percussion with her wrist and thumb in a cast.
The good news is that he was put through to Hollywood and we’ll see more of him.
If you recall, there have been a few American Idol contestants with diabetes: Crystal Bowersox, Elliott Yamin, and Kevin Covais.
