Gary Carter Has New Brain Tumors & a Torn Rotator Cuff

Gary Carter's daughter Kimmy Bloemers' latest report on the Kid is not good. It starts with a bad fall last week and terrible news today:

Friday, dad got two MRIs in North Palm Beach, for his brain and the other for his shoulder/arm. The results of the shoulder MRI were revealed later that afternoon. Unfortunately, with the combination of his fall on Christmas Eve and the fall on Thursday (plus probably years of baseball), he completely tore his rotator cuff. It is very painful and needs surgery, but all dad can do right now is rehab to heal.

Today, Kimmy updated her blog:

Dr. V told my mom that there are now several new spots/tumors on my dad's brain. I write these words with tears because I am so sad for my dad. Dr. Jimmy Harris will be coming to my parent's house this evening to talk to the family about the next step. I will continue to keep you all updated. Love to everyone and thank you for the prayers.
