Over the past several weeks my husband noticed gradually increased swelling in his stomach. According to his doctor, the swelling is due to fluid. I would like to know what could cause this and what can be done about it?Ascites, the medical term for an accumulation of fluid within the abdominal (peritoneal) cavity, may progress slowly and not he noticed for several months because it usually causes no pain or other symptoms during the early stages.The first hint may come when a belt or clothing feels tight.

Democrat Anthony G. Brown holds a modest lead over Republican Larry Hogan in Maryland's race for governor, but many voters have not firmly made up their minds and the outcome is far from certain, according to a new poll conducted for The Baltimore Sun. The poll by OpinionWorks of Annapolis found Brown leading Hogan 49 percent to 42 percent. Though Brown has a 7-point lead, the poll found his backers are less solid in their conviction than Hogan supporters. And many in Brown's camp are younger voters, a bloc that historically is less likely to vote.

TAMPA, Fla. - One of Jake Arrieta's goals in the early part of spring training is to pound the lower part of the strike zone with his mid-90s fastball, to tempt hitters to chop balls into the ground and let his defense make plays behind him. And in his 1 2/3-inning start Wednesday afternoon against the New York Yankees at Steinbrenner Field, the Orioles right-hander was able to do that, keeping every ball hit in play on the ground. Arrieta got ahead of hitters - his fastball running at 94-96 mph - but he found himself at times too wild with his fastball.

As kids spend time in the water, officials warn parents to keep a close watch to ensure children don't drown. But there is another condition parents should know about: secondary drowning. It afflicts children who survive a near-drowning incident. And though it's uncommon, it can be fatal if left untreated, according to Dr. Melissa Sparrow, clinical director for pediatric inpatient and emergency services at Greater Baltimore Medical Center. What is secondary, or dry, drowning? Secondary drowning is a term that is used by the public, and less so by physicians.

"You know, this 'chaos' idea makes sense," a seminar participant began, politely enough, upon collaring me at a break, "but I'm not sure the average person is up to it. We need some stability.""Crazy times call for crazy organizations," I'm fond of saying. The personal implications are daunting, as job security becomes a distant memory and even newly acquired skills turn out to have a half-life of just a few years.But the fact is, I agree with the seminar participant. Not only that, I freely admit that I hate change.

Right-hander Jason Hammel had fluid drained from his sore right knee this week and says he believes he is improving - certainly enough to make Friday's scheduled start and stay on the active roster. "I really feel like just getting me out there every fifth day is going to help the team," said Hammel, who is 5-1 with a 3.12 ERA. "Obviously, I don't want to kill the [bullpen], but I think missing me for a couple of weeks right now is probably not in the best interest of myself or the team.

Avast, mateys! That was a heckuva hullabaloo thrown aboard the USS Constellation last weekend. We're talking about the fund-raiser that Baltimore's wacky performance-art group Fluid Movement threw. This is the group that has made Baltimore history by putting on all those zany swim shows in the Patter-son Park pool. This year, Fluid Movement changed venues to the Constel-lation, where it performed "Go-Go Pirate Show," a rather loose interpretation of Treasure Is-land set to a '60s go-go theme.

Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said left-hander Johan Santana will throw five innings or 75 pitches Tuesday in an extended spring training game and then his next step will be determined. Santana, a two-time American League Cy Young Award winner, has an opt-out clause at the end of the month in the minor league deal that he signed in the offseason, but Duquette said he doesn't believe that is a concern. “That's open for discussion. I think the June 1 date was a date we had in mind that he would be close to being ready for the big leagues,” Duquette said.

Senior Zach Palmer returned to No. 13 Johns Hopkins after sitting out two games with an undisclosed injury and finished with zero points on four shots in Saturday's 8-4 loss to then-No. 7 Loyola. But rather than take up his usual spot on attack with sophomore Wells Stanwick and junior Brandon Benn, Palmer ran with seniors John Ranagan and John Greeley as members of the second midfield. Senior John Kaestner made his third consecutive start with Stanwick and Benn for the Blue Jays (8-5)

Senior attackman Zach Palmer and senior midfielder John Greeley sat out No. 13 Johns Hopkins' 15-4 thrashing of Navy on Saturday, and their status for this Saturday's regular-season home finale against No. 7 Loyola remains unresolved. Palmer, who is tied for second on the Blue Jays (8-4) in assists (12) and ranked third in points (24), has been sidelined for the team's last two games after sustaining an undisclosed injury during practice on April 10. His absence has been mitigated by the play of senior John Kaestner, who has totaled five goals and three assists in two starts for Palmer.

Now that quarterback Joe Flacco is poised to become the highest paid player in the NFL by virtue of a $120.6 million contract, the Ravens aren't expected to use the franchise tag on any of their other unrestricted free agents. Although Monday afternoon marks the league deadline to use the designation, general manager Ozzie Newsome has already stated that Flacco was the Ravens' lone candidate to be named a franchise player. The Flacco contract, which includes a record $62 million payout during the first three years, won't become official until the Super Bowl Most Valuable Player takes and passes a physical and signs his contract Monday.
