Trying to add a Category Description Field to products_results page

With your help, I successfully added the Category_Description field which you can see displayed at the link below. Now I am trying to to change the category_update.php in the Admin so the company can manage/add/edit the Category_Desreption. Attached is a copy of category_update.php for which I have 2 issues I hope you can help me with:
1> I added code to the Select statement and other places on the page for category_update and the screen displayed(attached) looks right except I need to make the Form Box that displays the text larger => 1024 characters so the Admin can really see it or most of it.
2> When I make an edit and click the Update button, I get the following error: "You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MariaDB server version for the right syntax to use near 'WHERE `Category_ID`='6'' at line 1" - I'm having trouble seeing the problem.
Your help would be much appreciated.
