Hall-of-Famer Gary Carter was taken to a hospital Thursday night and released Friday. He was diagnosed with bronchitis after being rushed to the hospital with a coughing attack, the New York Post reports.
According to his daughter, Carter was having "shooting pains in his back." He underwent X-rays and a CT scan in his chest and back, which confirmed the diagnosis. Carter has been diagnosed with Stage 4 brain cancer.
"What a huge praise that it is not as serious as it could have been," his daughter Kimmy Bloemers wrote on the family's private website. "However, because of dad's condition, a chest cold can drain dad's energy more. The sweet nurse said that everything looked great, which was a relief."
Carter continued his cancer treatments on Friday.For more baseball news, rumors and analysis, follow @cbssportsmlb on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
