La Pryor boy diagnosed with often-fatal disease

 
 
by Kimberly Rubio, staff writer
Instead of registering their 7-year-old son as a second-grade student with La Pryor Independent School District, Amy and Marcus Galindo Sr. signed registration forms at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, in Pennsylvania, to identify the severity of the young boy’s Krabbe disease diagnosis.
 
According to the family, Marcus Jr. was initially diagnosed two years ago with Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disorder. But, after genetic testing, Marcus was re-diagnosed with Krabbe disease, a rare and often-fatal degenerative disorder that affects the myelin sheath of the nervous system.
 
In infants, the disease is generally fatal before age 2; however, juvenile- and adult-onset cases tend to have a slower progression of the disease.

On Friday morning, a custodian who works at the Dolph Briscoe Jr. U.S. Post Office in Uvalde was collecting roofing nails scattered on Highway 90, about 6 miles west of Uvalde, when his pickup truck, parked at the side of the road, was struck and mangled by a passing FedEx courier truck.

There were no reported injuries.

According to information gathered at the scene, mail delivery contractors have recently experienced problems with flat tires. After other attempts to remedy the situation were unheeded, the post office custodian was making an effort to clean up the spilled nails.
