Annie's Mailbox KATHY MUCHEU/MMCY SIMM Dear Annie: My family is from the Midwest, and a cousin of mine is getting married in California this spring. My wife and I have two young children, so she is not able to make the trip for the big celebration. The wedding invitation was addressed to my wife and me. However, I really don't want to attend alone. A good friend of mine (and my wife's) lives in the same town as my cousin. I thought I'd ask her to attend the wedding with me so we can catch up and she can enjoy seeing my family, but my mother and sister think it is ridiculous and very inappropriate. What do you say? — Two Birds With One Stone Dear Two Birds: The invitation was for you and your wife, not for you and whomever you choose instead. However, there is nothing wrong with asking your cousin if you can invite someone in your wife's place. If this friend knows your entire family, your cousin may be happy to include her. Our real question is, how does your wife feel about this? If it's OK with her, and it's OK with your cousin, it's OK with us. Dear Annie: Your column is often the topic of the day Please help us start a conversation that will save a newborn's life. In 47 states, it is now legal for a parent to confidentially relinquish an unharmed newborn to a hospital employee. Most states' "safe haven" laws say this can be done within three days of birth. The goal is to prevent an unwanted newborn from being abandoned or killed. The babies are not the only beneficiaries. Parents who use this law will be able to go on with their lives knowing they've made a loving choice for their newborns. Plus, new families will be formed through adoption. Newborn Lifeline Network ( operates a national toll-free hotline at 1-866-694-BABY to answer questions about individual states' requirements. More people need to know that this safety net is available. Your readers may save a life simply by talking about your column and this topic. — Terry Spevacek Walsh, Executive Director, Safe Place for Newborns of Wisconsin Inc. Dear Terry Walsh: Thank you for giving us this information. There are too many panic- stricken new mothers who are trying to hide the birth or have no idea how to care for a baby. Too often, these infants are left in dumpsters, in public bathrooms or on a church doorstep in frigid' weather. Please, please, please, if you are about to have a baby and do not want it, for whatever reason, call the toll-free hotline to find out if your state has a "safe haven" policy. If it does, take the child to the nearest hospital. Do the right thing for your child. Dear Annie: Please tell "Clueless in California" to have her; husband checked for sleep apnea/ I am a 58-year-old male and al-. ways thought I was getting a good: night's rest.

Awake and Alert in Texas Dear Texas: Your letter is sure to help others. Many thanks for; suggesting he be tested for sleep apnea. The problem is more common, and more dangerous, than people know. — Write to Annie's Mailbox, P.O. Box 118190, Chicago, IL ore-ma/I REAL LIFE ADVENTURES CLOSE To HOME MAM, YOUk€~ CRABBY.

We have a 1-month-old baby who cries a storm. The baby has gamed weight and his pediatrician says he's normal and probably has colic. We are first-time parents and don't know what to do for him. — R.J. ANSWER: The dictionary defines "colic 1 as stomach pain that fluctuates with waves o: the digestive tract's muscular action, The nondictionary definition is a fussy baby thai cries a lot. A normal 6-week-old baby cries about three hours out of 24. If a baby that age cries more, it can be said to have colic. There are so many speculations about its cause that it is confusing to people to mention them all. If the baby's doctor is satisfied that all is well and since the baby is gaining weight, you can be quite certain that your baby's colicky days will be gone when he reaches 3 months. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: On my blood test it says my hemoglobin is 11. It also says this is low. I haven't a clue what hemoglobin is. Please help. — W.C. ANSWER: Hemoglobin is a large protein inside every red blood cell. It acts like a magnet for oxygen. It grabs onto oxygen as red blood cells pass through the lungs, and it releases oxygen to all parts of the body. A hemoglobin level serves as an indica tion of how many red blood cells a person has. A low number means the person is anemic. The normal hemoglobin for a woman is 12 to 16 (7 to 9.9) and for a man, 13 to 17 (8 to 10). AXYDLBAAXR isLONGFELLOW One letter stands for another.
