Hey Everyone, Just a quicky to share some more humor associated with the care of Mom and Dad.

Yesterday, Dad had a doctor's appt in the Woodlands TX (about 40 miles from us) concerning his spine. I also had an appt to take Mom at 3:15 to see her neurologist.

Dad and I got back from the spine dr. about noon. (He said he just wanted to wait and see if Dad will heal on his own. There is a proceedure where they "cement" the fractures, but it requires general anesthesia and being off coumain and we really don't want that). Dad is doing better and not complaining about the pain in his back as much.

Liz and I have been talking about giving Mom a perm. She is due for a hair cut and really needs a perm too. The guy who cuts her hair is a bit timid about doing a perm for her, so Liz and I decided we could do it and we decided to do yesterday between the dr's appts.

Liz got the perm box and was begining to open the chemicals and pour them together to activate them. I said, but we don't have the curlers/perm rods in her hair yet. Liz said you roll it after the chemicals and I said you have to do it before otherwise there is nothing for the hair to bend on. So she said there are better perms where you do the chemicals first and the rollers later. I was doubtful, but took my butt to the store to buy the product she told me about. Soft and lovely for children.

I looked at the box and it said it was a relaxer! I was thinking this couldn't be correct, because we wanted to curl the hair instead of straighten the hair. Well, I baught it anyway. If I am sent to the store for a product, that's what I bring back. Maybe Liz knew something I didn't.

Well, Liz starts to combine the products and I question her once more and she said it was a perm, but I said it is a relaxer.

So we decided to just roll her hair in traditional curlers and take Mom to the beauty shop for a perm and hair cut. I called the retirement community's hair salon and they will do it on Saturday.

Oh, and I want you to know when Liz was going to put the relaxer in her hair, Mom had the deer in the headlight look going on.

I hope you have a good weekend! I am off again today for a double doctor appt with both M&D at the same Dr.

Love, Mary
