Hi clients and customers and friends:

You may have noticed that you can’t currently get to the oil listing, or to the different pages for each of the oils that Quadrivium sells.  This is because, for all intents and purposes, Quadrivium is a one-woman show and the one woman has to be Mom before Business Owner right now.

My 8 year old daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes about 18 months ago.  We’ve been managing it successfully, with a Continuous Glucose Monitor and an insulin pump.  On April 29, we found out that our 5 year old daughter is also diabetic.  She is in the very early stages of Type 1 Diabetes, where the pancreas still does it’s job (at least part time), so she’s not on insulin yet.  She’s in good health, and with an older sister who has the same thing, she’s taking the diagnosis better than we are, I think.

Currently, my time is being occupied with school meetings, doctor appointments, blood sugar tracking, completely changing everything about the kids’ room (because midnight blood sugar checks and bunk beds are not a good combination), and being really angry at the world for hitting us with a random autoimmune disorder not once, but twice.  Type 1 Diabetes is manageable, but insulin isn’t a cure – it’s life support.  It’s also a LOT of work, especially for parents of diabetics too young to manage their own care.

One of my goals, when I started Quadrivium Supplies, was to get customers their orders within two weeks.  Preferably one week.  I hate waiting for things, I assume other people hate it too.  At the moment, it’s all I can handle to fill my (very late) store orders.  Online ordering for Quadrivium Oils WILL reopen, probably towards the middle or end of May, when the whirlwind of meetings has eased up and we’ve hired a childcare provider who’s able to manage two kids with diabetes.

In the meantime, please order your oils from one of the retailers that are listed on the sidebar.  Each of them carries my full line of oils, plus one or two exclusive oils that you can’t get elsewhere.  One store is in Canada, which is great if you’re an international customers.  They will all be restocked with Quadrivium Oils by May 11, if the Post Office cooperates.

Thanks for your understanding.
