Update on Eric, 24 April 2006
Eric is making progress. His blood pressure, heart rate and oxygen levels are good. He is eating well enough and has stood up twice today, without feeling dizzy. He is still very exhausted and weak. He has a slightly raised temperature caused by a bacterial infection (not MRSA or Clostridium). This is being treated with an antibiotic (Tazocin). Doctors are still unsure what caused the dramatic loss of blood pressure on Saturday and may do further investigations. He was well enough to complete most of the Guardian Quick Crossword today!
