Another heads up...

Hey, everyone!  I just wanted to give you all a heads up on what's going on right now.

YES...I have orders that are behind.  Why?  I had a supplier that was backordered on a ton of stuff, so it put certain orders behind, but not all of them.

Also, I have been sick.  I'm a severe asthmatic, and I've had several "close calls" over the past week or two.  I finally decided to go to the doctor yesterday, and it's confirmed.  I have a horrible case of bronchitis that could be turning into pneumonia.  I'm not sure how many of you are familiar with chronic asthma, but to keep it short, sweet, and to the point, if my condition gets much worse it could be considered life-threatening, and they will admit me to the hospital.  I'm trying to manage my current condition with antibiotics, heavy duty cough suppressants, and my rescue inhaler.  I will likely start receiving breathing treatments as well.

As much as I hate to do this, I will be taking a break from filling orders for a couple of days.  I KNOW it sucks...but I really want to provide a sanitary environment, and I don't feel that me packaging orders while I'm so ill is in your best interest.  My husband will be picking up some of the slack while I'm on my "sick leave", so orders WILL be getting filled...just maybe not as expediently as I (or you) would like.

I'm VERY sorry for the delay, but I need to get healthy before I can resume business as usual.  I hope you all understand.

Thanks so much!

Oh no..Get well so soon. My 6yr. old has asthma and when she gets a cold it is hell....You have to double do inhalers so she doesn't get sicker and it takes awhile to get over a cold. I feel for you...Take care of yourself first and foremost....

I'm so sorry to hear that you're ill.
Take care of yourself first and foremost!
You'll be in my thoughts.

Don't worry about us, just worry about yourself. I have no problem waiting for an order, just get better.

I had bronchial pneumonia in high school, it had turned out that way because I listened to three weeks of my parents saying "it's just a cold." I did antibiotics, a Prednisone burst, and then Albuterol, and I'm not asthmatic. If I was that miserable, I can only imagine what it's like for you. Just rest as much as you can!

I hope you get better soon! My husband has asthma and ended up in the hospital after he got pneumonia from me (apparently pneumonia is like EVERYWHERE but you only get it when you have a crappy immune system!). I think its really awesome of you to NOT be packing orders, seriously!! Some jerks might expect you to work when sick, but I'd rather you get better quick and give us more sparkle later!

Aw, sorry your health is not being nice to you. Hope you get better soon. I had bad asthma as a kid but luckily grew out of it. But I know how you feel. No fun!

Get well soon, take care of yourself first and foremost! No reasonable person would hold it against you for taking care of your own health :(

Feel better, your health is much more important than stressing about orders!
