Good morning! Trying to get my day started....on top of visiting #Eric in the hospital everyday, I have been trying to look 4 a place 2 live (cont'd..) & the juggling has been a little hectic. If for some reason you have tried 2 get in touch with me (text msg, call, email, etc) I apologize (cont'd..) right now if I haven't gotten back to you. I promise to as soon as the smoke clears a little. And for others who say they can't understand (cont'd..) it when I tweet Eric's updates -- please click these links for the latest: or have a great day! xo

Who is planning on hosting/attending one of Obama's HealthCare Kickoffs.....anyone? We are trying to organize on our end. Pls let me know! (cont'd..) There are 47 million uninsured Americans in this country. I would like to challenge you to host an Obama healthcare kickoff in your city (cont'd..) and talk about #Eric's story as well as others important to you. (cont'd..) Please let me know if you want to participate! #ERIC

Veronica De La Cruz tweets on from TweetDeck
I will most likely be at the one here in LA. Who has information on the HealthCare Kick off in Los Angeles?

I've been in and out of #Eric's room and all I can say is he is having another really rough day. He had PT today, which was draining 4 him (cont'd..) bc he is very weak. They pulled his breathing tube out and he still can't talk so they brought in a speech therapist because his voice has (cont'd..) completely disappeared. They put an NG tube back in and he has internal bleeding which they are trying to figure out where its coming from. (cont'd..) The NG tube is really bothering him so he is breathing really fast. Overall, he is in a lot of pain and it sucks sitting next to someone you (cont'd..) love & watching them suffer. He doesn't want anything. No TV, no music. Nothing. He doesn't even really want you to talk, he feels so crummy (cont'd..) Its very hard to watch. And it makes me angry when I think about what his doctor said 2 me which was - u guys r 2 years 2 late. (cont'd..) If only we would have gotten here 2 years ago, maybe #ERIC wouldn't be suffering like he is today.The whole red tape thing makes me so angry (cont'd..) If we could have gotten his Medicare 2 years ago, then he wouldn't be in the hospital struggling like he is right now. (cont'd..) Sometimes I feel so helpless, I don't know what else to do except cry. #ERIC

Veronica De La Cruz tweets on from TwitterBerry
So there's no confusion, the Dr said that 2 me about getting here 2 years 2 late when we 1st arrived. But they r working as hrd as they can.
