jelly on the plate
musings of an irish lady now living in America.
Did some blood tests a couple of weeks ago and found out that I'm a carrier for cystic fibrosis. http://www.cff.org/ Quite a shock really but turns out its very common with Northern Europeans and 1 in 24 is a carrier. Which means that either my Mum or Dad are and likely my siblings are as well as if you're a carrier you pass on 50% of the time. We just got word last night that himself is not a carrier which is fantastic news. Was trying not to worry as worry never helped anything but tis a relief. Treatment of CF has come a long way from when I first heard about it 20 yrs ago and PG they find a cure soon. Just makes you grateful for what you have folks. True Love, Good friends, Family and your health. Everything else is just flotsam.
So myself and himself flew to Florida for Dec 27th and my folks flew in from Ireland.
