Helen goes to the salon....

Yesterday we took the braids out of Helen's hair. Her ponytail was fake, they braid threats in with the real hair to "extend" the hair. Her hair was very long and it stood out like a cloud around her head. We washed it and try to comb it, but that became a drama!!! I couldn't get a comb through it. It was very painful, Helen cried. This morning we got her to school with her hair tied in some little pony tails. We would let it braid again, but this afternoon she told me that she wanted it shaved. So we went to the salon. To the barber for men, they do the shaving jobs. When he started, it looked like the way how they shave a sheep, so thick was the hair. I told the guy that he should not take all off. And he did a good job!

I still want to ask your prayers again for the two Christines. Christine 1, who got the convulsions on Monday is still not doing well. We tested her again for Malaria and this time it came out positive, so she is now on a Quinine drip, I am still concern about her. Christine 2 has a pneumonia, she is on IV injections. It will be a busy night for me, I have go to do the injections on odd hours during the night, then put Christine 1 back on drip for 4 hours. But if it helps them, it is ok.
