    Could you please help me with an e-mail to someone I haven't met before. After apologising for bothering him, (which I can manage even with my terrible Spanish!) I want to say that I would not normally dream of bothering him, except that I'm worried about my son (It's a long story!) Just thinking about rendering it with conditional and subjunctive is making my head ache! I'd be really grateful for suggestions.
    Thanks in advance

    "Siento mucho molestarlo pero estoy preocupado por mi hijo"

    Another option:
    "Disculpe la molestia, pero estoy preocupada por mi hijo"
