Evaluations at UCSF

Mom checks in today at UCSF for CJD evaluation.
The tests run for two days so she will be staying at the hospital with her daughter Stacy.

Tests should confirm the diagnosis, and DNA tests will tell us if this is the inherited form.
If it is inherited then there is a 50% chance that Sheryl inherited it.
If it is Sporadic CJD, then Sheryl's chance is one in a million like the rest of us.

Since both of Alice's parents lived into their 90s with sharp minds, it is most likely Sporadic CJD.
