THE UPDATE

Milano informed followers that Carp was in and out of consciousness and still on life support. She also shared that he might have had an infection but assured he is a fighter.

The most recent update is much better news for the family and fans who have been following Carp’s road to recovery. Milano has said that he is home and doing much better but still has a long way to go before fully recovering.

She has said that he will most likely need open-heart surgery, but for the time being, is in the comfort of his own home and is taking it easy. He has a care team in his own home who are working with him to get his strength up.

While he might have open-heart surgery, he is not currently strong enough to undergo surgery, so his care team is working on getting his strength up.
