DETROIT — A Michigan man hopes he can dodge the same illness that led to his wife's death.
George Cary is holding a memorial service Tuesday in Howell, Mich., for Lilian Cary, who developed fungal meningitis after getting tainted steroid injections for back pain. Cary says he's at risk after getting similar injections at the same clinic.
Cary says results from a spinal tap last weekend aren't in yet. He says he's left "watching the clock" until he gets the news.
Michigan has 21 cases of meningitis related to steroids made by a specialty pharmacy in Massachusetts. Two women have died, including Lilian Cary, a 67-year-old Brit who moved to the U.S. in 1965.
George Cary says his wife was taken off life support Sept. 30 after suffering a stroke.
