DEAR DR. GOTT: I am hoping you can help my 64-year-old brother. For the past three months, he has experienced what he describes as "bubbles" in his urine stream. He sees a physician's assistant at his local VA hospital in Oklahoma. He has had repeated blood tests and urine tests; all were said to be normal. My brother asked to see a urologist but was told not to worry about it, it's normal. He is quite concerned and doesn't know what to do. Is this a common?
Several things you've wanted for some time but couldn't afford in the past aren't likely to be denied you again. Your financial picture looks especially bright right now, so make the most of what transpires.

There was a time, before we were married, when my husband was an experimentalist. He wasn't experimenting with science. He was experimenting with alcohol. My husband and I knew each other back then. We were friends and attended the same school. I always thought he was cute but questioned why someone with his potential would "walk the line," potentially throwing his life away to drinking (and who knows what else) instead of working toward success.
