Detroit • A Michigan man whose wife died in a national outbreak of meningitis said Wednesday he's in a hospital being treated for the same illness, despite an initial round of tests that found he wasn't infected.
George Cary, 65, said he began having severe headaches while outside the state last Friday, a symptom of meningitis. He disclosed the news in statements provided exclusively to The Associated Press.
"I am feeling much better. ... I have only been on treatment for three days," said Cary, a Livingston County resident. "The doctors will monitor liver and kidney function and how well I respond to the side effects."
