Good morning #ETA. Thank u so much for all the positive reaction, love & support after my appearance on M&J yesterday. I feel like it was (cont'd..) a success because the ultimate goal was to raise awareness on the issue so we never have 2 see another person go through this ever again. (cont'd..) If u haven't seen the interview, pls click here: post ur comments below w/links 2, (cont'd..) petitions, and ways to get involved. I read a few of the comments and see that some completely missed the point as to what the segment was (cont'd..) about. The discussion was about how unnecessarily difficult it is in this country 2 get access to HC, and how that needs to change. NOW. (cont'd..) Affordable health insurance should exist for people who really need it, instead of only those who are healthy. The fact that a person who (cont'd..) has a pre-existing medical condition can't gain access to health insurance shows how flawed our system really is&thats why we need change. (cont'd..) TY 2 all of you, #ETA, 4 ur support - & as always thx 2 @Trent_Reznor who I cant & never will be able2thank enough. Update on #Eric 2 folo..

Just received word that Tara, @afathersheart, is not doing very well. She received a donor heart at the age of 16 and is very sick right now (cont'd..) #TARA's always been a big supporter of #Eric & organ donation in general. Please offer your prayers and well wishes. Get well soon #TARA xo

Quick update on #ERIC: I have been in NY for the M&J show and tomorrow I do a radioshow called HEALTHCARE CONNECT (details to follow), (cont'd..) so Noelle, #Eric's ex, has been holding down the fort in LA with Mom, my aunt and uncle and a few of #Eric's friends. Here are a few words (cont'd..) from Noelle, starting with what they did yesterday: " We got to the hospital around 11am and we were able to watch the show here. (TBC) (cont'd..) "It was very touching, &of course, difficult to watch. It's important 2 get out message&honestly deal with the shortcomings of the system. " (cont'd..) Noelle cont: "Eric is doing about the same . This morning he was continuing to complain that he was having trouble breathing... (cont'd..) Noelle cont: even though he was oxygenating OK. I went in and saw him about an hour ago and he had thrown up a lot of blood.....(TBC) (cont'd..) Noelle cont:Good news is , after getting it out of his stomach he was able to breathe better.They r transfusing him which should also help. (cont'd..) Noelle goes on to say he is tired and anxious (he always gets very anxious when he feels like he can't breathe, which makes perfect sense) ^ (cont'd..) and right now he is sleeping. I hate being away from #Eric, but he is surrounded by a slew of people. His ex Noelle, my Mom, our aunt&uncle (cont'd..) and his best friends Josh, Josh, and Ryan. The last time I was at the hospital there were so many people I barely got to see him. (cont'd..) We have to take turns visiting. Now they limit the time we can spend with him and allow only 2 visitors at a time. I agree with this because (cont'd..) I dont want him to get worn out. I also don't want someone to accidentally get him sick. He is still in protective isolation, (cont'd..) so no 1 is allowed in unless they have gloves on and a mask.His friends have been amazing and all drive in from Vegas to spend time w him.

@LockeDown815 I agree. A little bizarre, but I ve turned to Twitter 4 comfort. U and #Eric's Twitter Army have offered so much support.... (cont'd..) @LockeDown815 help & encouragement. We feel truly blessed. Hope Tweeple continue weilding their Twitter power wisely&for the greater good.
