I have been a recovery room RN for 15 years, prior to that I was an L&D nurse for 22 years. I have done some travel nursing which has taken me all over the country. I am a carrier of DMD, I have 9 siblings, none of my 5 sisters are carriers and my 4 brothers are healthy as are all of their children. So, sometime in my gestational development, I had a mutation of the dystrophin gene
About my family:
My husband, Dan, and I will be celebrating our 40th anniversary next month. We have 3 boys and a girl. Unfortunately, two of our sons were afflicted with DMD and have passed away.
