Ask Dr. Gott 2/7

DEAR DR. GOTT: Please tell your readers who have uterine prolapse about the easy, inexpensive, nonsurgical solution of a pessary. I can't believe what a difference this has made in the quality of my life. I was feeling pressure and had a constant urge to urinate that was very distressing. I have had a pessary in for several years now and it's great! I still have to get up several times a night, and there is still some stress incontinence, but I'm comfortable.

Dear Abby 2/7

DEAR ABBY: My husband is 56. His daughter, "Loreen," from his first marriage is 35. At times when he gives her a hug (as she's leaving from a visit) he will slap her on the butt.

(He also has a son.)
