May 202004

I just realized that I never posted about this but my ancestry is the typical northern European that seems to get MS far too frequently. I am heavily Norwegian, Dutch, German, and Swedish (though the Norwegian genes must be fairly dominant because I look Norwegian – at least in my opinion 🙂 I was also born in Toledo, OH and spent my fist 8 years in southern Michigan. I guess I had the deck stacked against me – now on the other hand I played outside a ton so I’m not sure I am buying into the sun exposure vitamin-d thing – well at least not for me. On the weird front it looks like 3 of the 4 grandchildren (me included) on my mother’s side may have autoimmune disorders. The only one without an apparent autoimmune disease, my sister, was born in a different hospital (in Michigan for her) so maybe there was (is???) some secret government testing going on at Toledo Hospital when we were born there! (j/k) 😉
