There always seems ta be an
exception to the rule.
Most children spend most a
there wakin hours tryin to figure
out such loop holes. This typically take the
form of bein very specific in the
interpretation of the rule.
"Dont throw peas
at your brother" is way too specific. To
an inventive youngster this would still leave
the option of carrot or green bean
throwin available. And of course the
completely different activity of
droppin or squirtin various
vegetables would also be outside the limits
The fact is that most kids
are very observant learners. The parents most
likely used this "exception" rule
to their advantage from time to time. This
culminates in the ultimate "do as I say,
not as I do" exception.
This is some fact, but

Foot Swelling a
Sign of Heart Problems?
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I have a
problem with my feet swelling. They get so big
that they hurt when I walk. My doctor is puzzled.
He thinks maybe its due to my heart pills,
but he cant change them -- my heart doctor
has to. I have had two heart attacks, bypass
surgery and a defibrillator put in my chest. When
Im in bed, the swelling goes down to almost
normal. When I am up, it returns, even if I am
sitting. Id appreciate any suggestions. --
ANSWER: I believe Im safe
in saying your problem is chronic congestive
heart failure. Your heart is pumping so weakly
that blood circulates sluggishly. When
youre up or when youre sitting,
gravity pulls fluid out of your legs
vessels, and it is the cause of your swelling. In
the horizontal position in bed, gravity
doesnt have this effect, and the fluid
stays in blood vessels. The swelling is called
During the day, take frequent
breaks to lie down with your legs propped up
higher than your heart. When you sit, rest your
legs on the seat of a chair put in front of you.
Walk as much as you can during the day. The
contracting leg muscles push fluid back into
Limit the salt you eat; salt
makes the body retain fluid. Read food labels.
Most of our salt intake comes from the foods we
eat, not from adding salt at the table or in
cooking. But dont do either. Your total
daily salt intake should be less than 5,700 mg,
preferably 3,800 mg. If salt is on the label as
"sodium," your total daily intake
should be 2,300 mg or less. A better goal is
Tell your heart doctor about
your swelling. He might make changes in your
medicines either by increasing the dose or
switching to other medicines that make the heart
pump with more force.
