Got back our results from our testing.  Mine is negative, DH's is positive.  Most assumed that his would be positive because of his mother. Mine could have been positive also but less likely because of not having a direct conection.  DD2 has scheduled to have the test with out gyno (we have the same one).  DD3 is going to have it done through the oncology clinic.

How is he feeling about this? I gather it wasn't a surprise but there must still be some sadness, maybe a bit of guilt.

Hopefully the other girls will be fine-& not be carriers either.

Yes he is feeling some guilt.  He apologized to the girls when he told them.

Your family sure is getting a crash course in genetic diseases and cancer treatment....hugs to all of you as you deal with this. Crossing my fingers that your other two dd's do not have the gene.
