My 54 year old daughter had the hives for about 4 days that she said were stress induced . The next day her husband found her dead in the bed. Autopsy showed acute myocarditis. The day before she died, her only physical complaint was the hives.
I had no idea that there was a connection between hives and myocarditis. Should I have known this? I have 2 more daughters. I, too want to know if they are at risk.

Here is what I did May 2015 after suspecting Dementia of some kind in my 83 year old husband:I typed a list of concerns such as getting lost while driving, severe short term memory loss,  unprovoked angry outbursts,  etc. Then at his next scheduled primary care physician appointment,  I gave this list to his PCP.  She immediately administered the mini mental test, which he failed, of course, a Brain CT Scan, blood work, x-ray, EKG, MRI of the brain and a neurologist consultation.All problems were ruled out except VASCULAR DEMENTIA.Without the documentation you are treading water.With the documented diagnosis, proper treatment was begun.  It has not been easy.  He was given a driving evaluation test which he failed.  He was tricked by me into exchanging his driver's license for an identification card.   He l o s this car keys. He threatened to shoot himself.   My daughter and her husband came and got the guns.He is flaming angry about his guns.*But he will not die by shooting himself!*He remains angry about his guns being gone.  My 54 year old daughter died  unexpectedly of acute inflammation of her heart, and for TWO long hours after her death all he could do was stomp, slam doors and swear and want his guns back. So the county Deputy Sheriff  is disabling his guns so they can be put back in the gun case .My daughter is dead. She leaves a husband, daughter and  her Granddaughters.  My husband (not her father) has escalating Vascular Dementia.   I am now beginning the process to take advantage of respite care.  The next hurdle/problem I am now facing is how do I get him to agree willingly to respite care??Please advise.

Dec 17, 2017 · Video Q&A: Why is it so difficult to lose weight? in Digestive Health

Labels on processed foods can be very misleading. Number one rule: look at the SERVING SIZE FIRST. This can be a real shocker.
The second rule: AVOID foods that are processed and therefore need labels.
Third rule: ingredients are listed in order of the percentage amount. If sugar or fat is in the first 4 or so ingredients, do not buy it.
Good luck with that. These rules are my opinion only, but this is how I lost and have kept off 40 pounds after 11 years.

“…already done the DPOA…”. Please let it go until she pointedly asks about it. Have official documentation at hand for her to read.
If this disturbs her and causes an emotional upheaval, then lesson learned. Do not do THAT again. The episode will be soon forgotten, but the angst will remain. As you will find out, this is a journey of trials and lots of errors.
Then when you finally get it figured out , her condition will change and it’s back to the drawing board.
A roller coaster ride like nothing anyone can imagine.
