It's another Friday, so I'm here to wish you a great day!  I had such a fun day yesterday and got something in the mail that put the icing on the cake, so to say.  I received a written report on my genetic test(Brca 1&2) that I had two weeks ago. I was thrilled to read that my result for negative for this gene.  It means simply, that I didn't inherit the gene my sister did for Ovarian cancer and that my girls won't need to have this test in the future.  I am still waiting to hear about the CTscans and meet with my doctor, but it made my day. 
Last night, hubby and I watched a show on the Smithsonian channel about American women in the late 1800's who married Earls, Barons and such in London and Paris. It was very similar to Downton Abbey, but the true stories of Aristocrats marrying wealthy Americans.  I was also surprised to find out that Princess Diana great grandmother was married to a man from Ireland with my maiden name.  That got me to wondering if my family wasn't only a distant cousin of the Kennedy's but also Princess Diana.  We only watched one episode of it and the following show was American Princesses; I will definitely have to look for this series and record it.
Not much happening here this weekend.  I hope you have a restful weekend and do something fun!
Blessings,
Noreen

  6. Such good news about the genes. Really pleased for you and your daughters. Unlike Downton many of these marriages where just a sham...title for cash which is quite sad. Hey ho that is wealth for you. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  15. Yay on the good news in the mail!! My sister had the test performed a few years back, after she finished up her treatment for her breast cancer ... thankfully it came back ok. Hopefully you'll get the scan results soon. Enjoy your weekend, my friend.
