Thank you for following up with that information.

Given the timeframe, I would also highly suggest giving out 24/7 support a call at 1 (888) 746-7439. If you wanted to keep an eye out for my email and shoot me a reply as soon as you can, we can get the ball rolling on finding a solution.
All the best,
