I went to the clinic for blood work today. When the nurse called back with the results, we apparently have found the right amount of blood thinner, because the numbers were in the proper range for another month. As I get set to go back in a week for the more intensive 6 month check up, knowing that part of the equation is right, takes away some of the anxiety. I’m hoping for another encouraging report.
We have our own printing press on campus, and the folks up there do great work. I hadn’t stopped by there for a while, so I said hello to the folks and checked in on their work. All the Christmas letters are in the process of being mailed, and now the folks there are printing lots of the brochures that we use throughout the year: fliers giving an overview of the school, the Lakota Life information, an insert on our charitable annuity program. I went downtown to our thrift store to meet our new part-time employee, who was chatting with customers and ringing up merchandise like a seasoned pro. We have many employees who do jobs not usually associated with a school that contribute to our overall effort and help us be successful.
I met with the two 7th grade girls who were chosen to go the St. Augustine Florida luncheon in January. They were both incredibly excited. Getting to see the ocean is high on their to-do list . Over the next few weeks, we’ll practice so they can overcome their nervousness and tell folks about their experience of St. Joseph’s.
