There is another whole side of the coin that I have not discussed in all of this. Abby has a brother. My sweet wonderful son Sam.  Females have a 10% chance of becoming affected when they gene mutation while males have a 50% percent chance.   So that means Sam has a 50% chance of becoming affected or on the other side he has a 50% chance to NOT becoming affected.    

Sam can't pass it down to his children but Abby can. Not because she is affected but because she is female.  Its only passed down by females.

Its all a jumbled mess.

To imagine that some day Sam could be going through the same thing Abby is very hard to even think about but its,

My mother, my sisters, my nephews and myself at risk.  This is part of our lives now.
