I'm a mutant!

I just found out that I carry the gene mutation that causes Cystic Fibrosis.
Now my husband has to be tested for it too. If he is a mutant as well, we have a 25% chance of having a child with CF. Because genetic testing is so expensive, we couldn’t afford testing the both of us. I went for the test because there is a case of CF on my fathers side. Most people have a 1-in-20 chance of being a carrier.
One thing that bothers me is that of all the things I could have inherited from my father’s side, it had to be this! All the women on my father’s side are petite, with blond hair and blue eyes! Beautiful! Why couldn’t I have gotten one of those recessive genes! That might sound petty, considering what I did get, but if you knew me, you’d know that’s just my luck. I also have to make light of this, because, deep down, I am really worried about this, and joking around is my way of dealing.
Anyway, I just had to share.
