Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 16, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers r, f.bruory 16, 1971 THE 1ETHBKIDGE HEKAID Abortion Calendar of local It lappcmnai seminar March S DEAR ANN LANDERS: 1 just read the letter asking what has happened to the old fashioned grandma who used to be so important in the lives of young children and it started me thinking I agree with the person who mote. Grandparents of young children can add a lot to the life of a child. May I make a suggestion? If children dcn't have a grandma or a grandpa in their own family they might try adopting one from Uie old peo- ple's home. Thousands of old folks sit day after day. They never get any company. Weeks pass and they never even receive a card or letter. No one cares about them. These old people would love to have some youngsters come to visit someone they could tell stories to. Old folks enjoy talking and they have so much to tell. A visit with a make-believe grandpa can be lots of fun. So please, Ann Landers, publish my letter. It could bring so much sunshine into the lives of so many old folks and young ones. too. Grandpa DEAR CRAMP: Thank you (or a beautiful suggestion. Someone, somewhere is going to bs happier because you wrote. DEAR ANN LANDERS: This friend of mine, I'll call her Celia, has an odd sense of humor. By that I mean she is always making jokes at someone else's expense. For some reason she does not like my boyfriend. Rollie is a swell guy but he's about an inch shorter tliaii I am and quite thin. This does not bother me at all. but it seems to bother Celia. Last week Celia asked me if 1 would go to a movie with her. I told her I had a date with Rollie. She an- swered, "Oh mat little runt. I'll bet I weigh more than he does." This made me mad and I said, "O.K., it's a bet." That minute Rollic came by and Celia blurted out. "We were just talking about you. We have a bet on how much vbu weigh." Rollie looked hurt and embarrassed. He said nothing and walked on. I am sick about this because he probably thinks 1 was out to humiliate him. Please tell me what to do. Rollie has avoided me since that day and I feel terrible. For Him DEAR L.F.H.: The next lime you see Rollie tell him "you are sorry about the incident and you hope he will forget it. Don't go into detail about who said what. Just say it was a bad scene and you are unhappy about it. Between us girls, Celia sounds like a creep. You need some new friends. DEAR ANN LANDERS: 1 was interested in your advice to the 60-year-old woman whose husband was still having af- fairs long after his wife was sure he had given up that sort of foolishness. She asked if she could consider divorce. You told her to make the decision based on one fact would she be better off or worse off without him. I had to make that same decision a few years ago and discussed it with my physician. He wisely pointed out that the immaturity was my husband's problem, not mine, and I would be a fool to break up my marriage after so many years. So I've managed to keep myself busy, .and I am. reasonably content. I hope one day my adolescent husband will grow up and settle down, I am willing to wait. If that day never comes, I still will feel I made the decision that was best for me. Reader DEAR Y.: Thanks for a good letter. Your solution was not ideal, but it was indeed the best solution for you and for most women who are walking in your moccasins. Unsure of yourself on dates? What's right? What's wrong? Should you? Shouldn't you? Send for Ann Landers' booklet "Dating'Do's And enclosing with your request 35 cents in com and a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope.

Out. (CPi Nine-year-old Andy Irvine likes to play road hockey. He is also a Rover scout. These aren't unusual things for the average nine-year-old but then Andy is far from av- erage. Since he was six months old he has had three major heart operations, and he was born with his stomach turned backwards. Andy's story began when he was six weeks old, when he suffered his first heart attack. His mother. Mrs. David Ir- vine, now of Oshawa. said that when Andy was born he was perfectly healthy and weighed 10 pounds. "He was the middle child and tho heaviest baby of the lot." she said. "Up until the attack the doctors couldn't find anything wrong with him. But I sensed something was different. When you're a mother you just know." Andy was born in Halifax, and entered the Halifax Chil- dren's Hospital with his first attack. It was found he had two holes in his heart and four blood vessels in poor con- dition. The first operation seemed a success and Andy responded well to the post operative care he received at home. "The only problem we had with Andy after this opera- tion was his in keep- ing food down." his mother said. "I just gave him normal care at home. I used to hold him a lot." MORE OPERATIONS The Irvines came to Os- hawa six years' ago and an- other series of treatments began for Andy. lie under- went two more operations at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, one to correct fur- ther heart damage and the second an exploratory opera- tion. Mrs. Irvine said Andy was years old before he learned to walk, and now he is only as big as his younger brother. Brian, six. "Andy knew he had to have another operation when the last one was scheduled in 1968. Mrs. Irvine said. He had a choice whether to go through with it or not and he wanted to. He's perfect. His only concern was whether I was worried." She said when she and her j husband visited Andy in hospi- tal after the operation, he was lying there all wired up with I tubes. But the first thing he said was. "Don't worry; I'm all right." Andy still lakes twice- yearly visits to the Toronto doctor. The last letter Mrs. Ir- vine received said the fight i was far from over for Andy but that he was progressing well. Mrs. Irvine wants to get in- volved with the Canadian Heart Fund, to show people the done in research in j helping children like her son. j "There are many people j who think of heart disease as just an illness o[ older peo- she said. "But there are j a great many children suffer- ing from heart ai'ments." DOES HIS CHORES i Andy's family refuse to i baby him. He has chores1 to do j just'like his brother and sis- ter. Cindy. i "He keeps his room tidy and washes tile dishes some- Mrs. Irvine said. "He'd like to start playing the guitar or Ihe we can't find one small enough." Andy would also like to ride a bicycle, but that's out. "He did have one his mother said. "But he almost fell off in front of a car so that was the end of that." The Rover scouts heard all about Andy last summer and invited him to Camp Samac just north of Oshawa to be- come an "honorary" Rover. went up to the camp and they gave me two hats and a whole bunch of badges." Andy said. "We looked around the buildings and grounds and had a great time.'1 In school Andy's favorite subject is moth "because I'm good at it." For recrea- tion he spends a lot of time watching play- ing a rough game of road hockey with his brother. For now it's a waiting game for Mr. and Mrs. Irvine. "I just count the days and years until this is she said. "I never really believed it wouldn't turn out all right. That's why wp treat him just like the other children." World's Fair in Japan.
