MS Word Macro Picture Help

Folks:

I need to play two graphic files at the top of my page.  This is to create a letter head using a macro.  The transcription department transcribes medical records, and we want to stop printing on letterhead.  I would like the graphics to be part of the Header, since I cut and past the body frequently for other purposes.

I have a start, but I cannot get the two images to be far left and far right respectively.  I want the LOGO to be far left (Farther than the margin, and the second graphic LH2.bmp to be far right.  This is the address portion saved as a graphic.

The macro then puts some text at the bottom.  

I just need a little help.  High points for speed.

You need to insert  the pictures as Shapes if you want the flexibility to locate them in any position.
Sub LH2()
    Dim strPicture1 As String
    Dim strPicture2 As String
    Dim Doc As Document
    Dim hdr As HeaderFooter
    Dim ftr As HeaderFooter
    Dim sh1 As Shape
    Dim sh2 As Shape
    Dim hfix As WdHeaderFooterIndex
    
    strPicture1 = "C:\Documents and Settings\overhotl\My Documents\LH1LOGO.PNG"
    strPicture2 = "C:\Documents and Settings\overhotl\My Documents\LH2.BMP"
 
    Set Doc = ActiveDocument
    If Doc.Sections(1).PageSetup.DifferentFirstPageHeaderFooter Then
        hfix = wdHeaderFooterFirstPage
    Else
        hfix = wdHeaderFooterPrimary
    End If
    Set hdr = Doc.Sections(1).Headers(hfix)
    Set sh1 = Doc.Shapes.AddPicture(strPicture1, False, True, , , , , hdr.Range)
    sh1.RelativeHorizontalPosition = wdRelativeHorizontalPositionPage
    sh1.Left = 0
    Set sh2 = Doc.Shapes.AddPicture(strPicture1, False, True, , , , , hdr.Range)
    sh2.RelativeHorizontalPosition = wdRelativeHorizontalPositionPage
    sh2.Left = Doc.Sections(1).PageSetup.PageWidth - sh2.Width
    
    Set ftr = Doc.Sections(1).Footers(hfix)
    ftr.Range.Text = "Work Well Clinic" & vbTab & "Therapy Plus" & _
        vbTab & "Hearing Conservation" & vbCr & _
                "(319) 369-8153" & vbTab & "(3190 369-8107" & _
                vbTab & "(319) 369-7569"
