DEAR DR. GOTT: My husband is 87 years old and hasn't been feeling well for quite some time. His primary care doctor cannot find what is causing him to feel so weak and shaky. He has had what I call a "meltdown" several times in the past. He will begin to shake and wants to fall down. I help him to the floor, and, after about 10 minutes, he feels better and can get up and move around again. He had one this morning.

The defensive signals in bridge are, in theory at least, not hard to grasp. Top priority goes to attitude. An unnecessarily high card tells partner that you have useful goodies in that suit. When attitude is known or clearly irrelevant, you signal count. You play your lowest card with an odd number, or start an echo (high-low) with an even number. If both attitude and count are known or irrelevant, you send a suit-preference signal. Your lowest card asks for the lower-ranking of the other two side suits, your highest card for the higher-ranking suit.
