It has been a really long time that I've shared anything on this site. I read others posts, & sometimes I'll even comment on them. There are a few of you whom I message back & forth with.
I found out where my PBC came from. Not the cause of it but where I got it through the family. Since 2012, when I was diagnosed, I always knew that there are genetic links connected to our PBC. Just never knew from who or where. My mother had a uncle (i think) from her dad's side who passed away. She was talking with a cousin at the funeral home yesterday evening, who recently underwent a liver transplant. My parents asked why she had to get a new liver. That's when both of my parents became socked. She started explaining PBC to them. Yes, finally, a few more questions have been answered on my PBC journey. Still not sure why we have it, but at least I know the genetics in my family. I'm excited to get to meet & figure out, possibly, who had it for her to genetically get it.
Thanks for listening, & as always...
