Customer Question

I have a question similar to the one on screen (if you can see it), and have a pic if it helps. Joists run north and south and this wall between kitchen and dining room runs east and west co original conclusion is NOT a load bearing wall, but there is a header built over what was a pocket door and the header is tied into a 8' single north/south 2 x 10 that would be considered load bearing. Upstairs is a cape code and this section under Kitchen is approx. 60% attic. Can I extend the header to approx. 136"? How can I send pic?
