For days, Mike and his friend moved cars out of the way. One day, while still there, he woke up with strange symptoms.
“He didn’t know where he was, he was confused, nose bleeding, and he had blisters on his legs,” Dina explained.
Mike went to the hospital, but left a little later, seeing tornado victims waiting who needed more help.
More than one year later, he’s still in constant agonizing pain.
Mucormycosis most commonly affects the sinuses or lungs. Symptoms of sinus infections include fever, headache, and sinus pain. Lung infections with the fungus can cause fever and cough.
Skin infections can develop after the fungus enters through a break in the skin caused by surgery, burns, or trauma. A skin infection can look like blisters or ulcers, and the infected tissue may turn black. Other symptoms of a skin infection include fever and tenderness, pain, heat, excessive redness, or swelling around a wound.

This is Mike Forest wife. Thank you all for your comments and suggestions. His primary job while in Joplin was pulling cars out from the hospital parking garage. Anyone that was not "working" to clean up were all in HazMat suites. A week afterwards he woke up with a blood soaked pillow, blisters on his legs, terrible head aches, and flu like feelings. Freezing cold sweats. He lost days of his memory. The paid has never gone away, but since it has been so hot here this year it seems to have brought back on most of the symtoms. Watch Fox 4 Kansas City news to hear him explain the feeling of a spoon scrapping his bones. Please help us spread the word on CNN and Fox 4 Kansas City so we can find a doctor to come take him and figure this out. We are 30 days from handing over our house and car, because he is in so much pain and cannot take it anymore. He is giving up on me and I won't allow it. Thank you all for caring! Dina Forest
