Jose Update

Jose had a pretty good week. He went into work for a few hours to check on things. Other than being extremely tired and having super, lizard like, dry skin. He seems to be doing well.

We went to the AF hospital Friday to have Jose's labs done.
Platelets- 186,000
Hematocrit- 28.1
W.B.C- 0.6 or 600(uh oh!)
Neutrophils- 0.1 or 100(uh oh!)

His immune system is wiped. They started him on Levaquin and Penicillin to prevent infections. He is susceptible with neutrophils under 500. We are not sure the plan. I'm wondering if they will admit him. Waiting for the docs to call us Monday.

I am contacting you on behalf of the Mesothelioma Center at I was wondering if you would be interested in our organization contributing an article about mesothelioma cancer for your site. Mesothelioma is a rare cancer that appears in the lining of the lungs, heart and stomach. Our goal is to bring awareness to this disease and prevent future cases by educating the public about the dangers of asbestos. Additionally we work 1-on-1 with individuals and their families to help them find local doctors, treatment centers and support groups. We have a team of knowledgeable writers that would love to write original content about the topic for your website and its visitors.
If this is something you would be interested in or if you have any questions please let me know. I look forward to hearing back from you. Thank you for your time.
Best Regards,
Mike Postorino
National Awareness Director
