DEAR DR. GOTT: I am an 85-year-old active female, still playing tennis, who was rushed to the hospital this past summer bleeding from six very large polyps in my stomach. The surgeon does not recommend surgery because of high blood pressure and a mitral-valve prolapse treated with drugs. I weigh 102 pounds and am 5 feet 3 inches tall. The gastroenterologist performed a second endoscopy, found the polyps are benign, and told me to return to him in a year. Do you have any recommendations as to treatment or surgery?
DEAR ABBY: Is it harmful for someone to practice golf swings right after breakfast? I'm talking about leaving the breakfast table and heading outside to the back yard and starting practice. The way I see it, swings exert a lot of effort. Swinging a club for 15 to 20 minutes could do damage to the internal organs, right? To say the least, I don't think it helps the digestion.

Q: My 5-year-old is the youngest of my three children. Her older boy/girl twin siblings clearly outshine her athletically. They're already very skilled at wakeboarding and snow skiing, for example. I think my youngest has decided that because she doesn't measure up to her siblings, she will simply give up. All she wants to do is hang out with me. (I'm not athletic, either, but everyone in the family except this one child is physically active.)

The lines on the sailboats in the boatyard keen in the wind, cats meowing mournfully at some imagined wrong. The tide is low, the water nearly flat. In the not too distance, a shrimp boat's silhouette cuts the gray landscape with edges as sharp as a knife blade. It is not exactly too cold for a long walk, but I am ill-prepared; the coat is warm enough, the shoes sturdy enough, but without gloves or a scarf, my hands, my face, my ears will be gnawed raw in minutes.
