I am trying to get my sister and mom to test at the same time for hereditary reasons AND My mom is chronically ill, thyroid problems (had removed due to Graves), allergies, horrible fatigue and her mother had osteoporosis, plus she just feels crummy ALL THE TIME. My sister has bowel problems chronically. IN-LAWS With the IN-LAW thing, I know some will understand and some will not.

Please help!
