Patience and Thoughtfulness

First I want to thank everyone for the Good Wishes you are sending my son Justin, they are greatly appreciated!

Just a quick time line:

October 2010 Justin, my 17 year old son had his ACL and meniscus repaired, which unfortunately became infected early January.
January 11th, 2011 he was back in surgery to have the incision cleaned and taking major antibiotics.

Unfortunately last week we noticed his incision was infected once again, yes the dreaded St…

So Monday February 7th, he was back in surgery to once again clean the infection out, but has come down with a nasty virus in the process.

Today is Wednesday and I write this as I sit by his hospital bed hoping at any moment he will say “I am feeling better and I want to go home.”   The good news is he has not had a fever in 8 hours so they may be able to put his PICC line in his chest today and maybe get to go home!  He will have the PICC line in for 6 weeks to make sure the infection from his knee does not come back.

Why am I telling you this?  Because I am a bit tired, I forgot the cleaning lady was coming yesterday, I forgot to cancel a clients appointment last night and I am wondering how many messages are at home that I have not returned.  I do not want anyone to think that I do not care about their needs because I do.  Any small business owner  knows that one unhappy client who say’s “Judy has not returned my calls” can effect my business as much as 10 very happy clients.

So, I ask for your Patience as I play the balance card of being a mom first and a trainer second during this time.

As for classes tonight 2/9 I do plan to be there as my wonderful husband is home this week.

Thanks again for all your prayers and good wishes!
