IBRF Conference Call Tomorrow

Preparing for IBRF Conference Call

It’s crazy. So many balls in the air (and some are not even blue). It takes us hours just to prepare for a conference call with the doctors at IBRF. Both their time and ours is highly valuable, so we do our best not to miss anything.

I spent the morning putting together an agenda for the call. No easy task! It’s often more daunting than running a business meeting.

I thought you might be interested in what we discuss on the call, so I copied it from my Word document and included it below.

    Talk about overwhelming! WOW! It is much more daunting than setting up a meeting where I work! I hope it goes as you want!

  2. Sam Durham says:

    Ken, you probably have already done this, but I’d send them this list to so maybe they can have answers to some of your concerns/questions, instead of putting it on their “to do” list.

  3. Paula says:

    Ken, you’re right, this is worse than planning for a business meeting!! Plus, I felt like I just took some introductory medical school class. *Thank you* for sharing all this information with us, it is fascinating to see the methods the IBRF team is using to help Ryan continue to recover. Adding acupuncture sounds like a fantastic idea — would you mind letting us know who it is? I keep meeting great professionals here that I would like to refer or go to myself. Do you guys record these IBRF calls in case you want to double check something? You are so thorough and on top of everything. The docs probably love working with you because of that. Ryan is blessed to have you, Sue and Kari in his corner. I feel blessed to have met your family and to know Ryan. What beautiful children you have. Please continue to keep us posted on whatever help you might need. Sending love and prayers as always, Paula

    Ken , No business meeting could ever be this complicated..Good luck with call

  5. sally ellis says:

    Wow, I agree the docs must love working with folks that are so pro-active. I didn’t realize Ryan was responding to a move thumb command. That is very encouraging. Keep up the diligence guys, it seems to be paying off As always, strong thoughts and good vibes your way.
