DETROIT (AP) - A Michigan man whose wife's death was tied to the national outbreak of meningitis says he's in a hospital being treated for the same illness.
George Cary says he began having severe headaches Friday, days after being told that initial tests in early October showed no evidence of meningitis.
The 65-year-old Livingston County resident didn't disclose the name of the hospital Wednesday in his statement, which was provided exclusively to The Associated Press. He says he's feeling "much better" after three days of treatments.
Cary and his wife, Lilian, were treated for back and neck pain at a Brighton-area clinic that used contaminated steroids made by a Massachusetts pharmacy. The drugs are blamed for a national outbreak of fungal meningitis that has killed 24 people.
Lilian Cary died Sept. 30.
