I have a 9 year year old that visited the cardiologist due to some family history of heart problems. They said that his aorta measured at 2.1 and that they would test him again in 2 years. We were told that this was on the higher end of normal and they wanted keep tabs on it.

My question is, is this something that we should overly concerned about since this is in the normal range still, although on the high end? We have two other boys as well, a 14 year old and a 5 year old both of which were no issue. Thanks so much for our help and insight!

my mom is in a nursing home. she s almost 88 and suffers from dementia. i m guessing it s alzheimers. her memory is gone. she s had three urinary tract infections in the last month and her dementia gets worse each time. she s on a diuretic because of swollen ankles, prednisone and methotrexate for polymalyalgia. she also takes blood pressure meds and anti anxiety meds. she shows symptoms of OCD. here s my question: she constantly asks to go to the bathroom, almost every 5 minutes (one day, 16 times in 3 hours). do you think this is because of the dementia? any suggestions to helping her not feel the need to go all the time? she gets upset if she s not attended to right away and they simply don t have the staff to wait on her. thanks.
