Cari Blog 21

Hey Everyone


I was waiting for Eric to do his video before I did my update.  After watching his video you got the jist of things.  Eric’s inpatient for the next 6 days.During this time, Eric’s headaches have come back.  After a long night of testing and things, they have come to the conclusion that it’s better to take the Ommaya port they JUST put in, out of his head. They found infection in his brain, so we’re going to have another brain surgery day.  This all happened so fast that literally I am waking up to tell you all about it.  We will keep you posted, and I promise a longer Cari blog next time,


Thanks for your continued support
