Thank you so much. I got your e-mails. So, I quite understand the case if my mom gets gene mutation. But if the case is germline mosaicism or gonadal mosaicism as you said, it is a little confused.
Anyway, we should wait for my mom's test result at first.
I will comeback and ask for your guidance then.
Yes, Andrea is excellent and very supportive. My family loves her.
Thanks a lot.Trinh
I wanted to let you know that I sent you two emails earlier today regarding your questions about family history and carrier testing. Please let me know if you did not receive them. I apologize for my delay in responding...I'm currently in England at a Duchenne conference. If you want to talk by phone, please feel free to call me anytime next week (201-937-1408).
And thank you Andrea for your helpful responses! You get an A+ in genetics! ;)

Thank you Kathi. I am also very blessed to be a part of THIS village. Its nice to talk with people who understand, because so many people don't. Thank you again for your kind words and encouragement.
Thank you Kathi. My husband told me I read too much. I responded with, "as long as I gave the boys this gene, I will BE SURE they have the best life possible and a pain free as possible". Can I just say, that was the end of that conversation haha. My husband is very supportive, just worries and is in denial a lot. Poor guy.
Scratch that Kathi. I found it. Thanks. I learned more than I think I wanted to but necessary.
Kathi Kinnett, I really don't see anything in reguards to Beckers on the care page:(
Kathii, Thank you so much for this information. It sadens me that I have passed this horrible gene to them. And I have apologized to them as well. I will definitely take your advice as you seem to have great knowledge. THank you and I do hope to speak with you again.
