Quote KeishaSam: Brooke is Jack's DNA mother, I chose this topic because I went back over the October 16, 2007 episode of B&B. I keep the episodes I like. It is interesting because I finally listened to the words that were said before I started any thread about Jack's DNA mother. I am just quoting what was said on B&B I haven't put anything in my owns words. Even in the daily updates it said DNA. Reread October 16 Daily update review. The nurse drew blood from the baby, Bridget said she was going to the lab she will take the sample. Bridget then signal NIck to meet her outside in the hallway.
Quotes, Nick said, "This blood is going to where it has to?"
Brdiget said "Yes I'm taking it to the fertility lab right now myself,my Mom's DNA in on the computer."
Nick said, "So you're going to run the same test on this blood as you ran on your mothers?"
Bridget replied, "Compare the markers to my Mom's and if they don't match then we know the egg came from the anonymous donor."
Marker is the sequence in which a person DNA comes.
While in the lab with Carl, Bridget starting saying how happy Nick and Taylor are and then she said, Quote.
Bridget "Please God, these DNA results please don't let him be my Moms." October 16, 2007.
I'll repeat "these DNA results" from B&B the show not my words. ON B&B Bridget already compared Jack's blood sample to Brooke's DNA.
I know Brooke is Bridget's mother and some people are under the assumption that Bridget could be the mother. Bridget is Brooke's daughter, but remember Brooke's DNA markers line up according to her parents, Beth and Stephen. Bridget markers lined up according to Brooke and Eric.
If only I had listened back in October I would have realize that Jack's DNA have already been settled. Because I found it strange that Bridget would run an Rh antigen test to find out who the donor was that is why I watched the tape again from before Jack was born and Listened word for word. Rh antigen test was ran after it was learned Jack had SCID it wasn't the test ran to compare Brooke's DNA markers to Jack's blood sample. Believe me I was amazed that Nick, Brooke and Taylor and any hospital would go along with only and Rh antigen test to prove who the donor was, but now I realized Brooke's DNA were on the computer from when she had her eggs tested and that's what Bridget used.
October 16, 2007 Episode DNA was mentioned in regards to Jack and Brooke.
Brooke is Jack's DNA mother.
I am writing as to what was said and the questions remain because something is significantly wrong with this entire situation:
First and foremost although knowing of a hospital mix up, Bridget never told the parents who could have made a decision to carry through with their plans, or not.
She deprived them the right to choose.
October 16 - Bridget lied about going to the lab to the nurse in order to get a handle on this blood to run her own tests much like Brooke lied to Ridge as to the reason as to why her eggs were at this hospital!
Flawed chain of command, #1 [remember the OJ Simpson trial when the police handled blood samples personally and how that action was shredded by the defense].
Nick: Now this blood's going where it needs to go?
Bridget: Yes. I'm taking it to the fertility lab right now myself, and my mom's D.N.A. Is already in the computer.
Nick: So you run the same test on this blood that you ran on your mother's?
What is the name of this alleged test she ran on her mother, which would be the same test run again?
The actual name is not articulated in this conversation.
With that said,
Bridget ran DNA tests on her mother 8- 9 months prior to Jack's birth?
Now this raises a question/red flag!
Why was this 'DNA' test done, why was this material stored?
Is DNA testing normal procedure at a fertility clinic with regards to IVF procedures, or otherwise, or did Bridget have "prior intent" to mix up the egg donation of her mother to allow her mother to be the egg donor?
At this fertility lab shown on TV there were no other techs to run this test in the first instance on Brooke who had expertise in the field?
In the second case, if Bridget is a doctor could she not have had the tests needed to determine 'biology' conducted ASAP by those same people in the lab having expertise in the field of DNA?
For what reason would SHE have done this DNA testing on Brooke 8-9 months prior to the birth date of Jack, at what lab, was she alone in doing this, etc?
Can she account for the vials of blood she used.
Did she use her own blood to test against her mothers?
Big questions for any attorney.
Bridget: Compare the markers to my mother's, and if they don't match, then we know the egg came from the anonymous donor
Bridget has expertise in DNA testing and analysis?
Again, why is Bridget [a doctor in training in OB/GYN] running a DNA test in the first instance on her mother; and why is SHE the doctor who ran the second?
Is DNA testing a necessary factor to determine whether a woman's egg is viable, or not?
There is something terribly wrong with this entire situation with her being smack dab in the middle of a multitude of medical procedures [medical procedures out of her filed of expertise and being done by her in secrecy].
Why did she want to conduct the testing in the lab ALONE?
A lawyer worth his "weight in gold" would tear this matter to shred in a court of law - from the chain of command of blood vials, to the person performing all the tests, to the one person who is making all these conclusions [absent expertise] and more.
Brooke went to the hospital to see if her eggs were viable because she desperately wanted to lure Nick away from Taylor [using a baby as bait].
Brooke demanded tests to be done her, by her own daughter - collusion perhaps in the lab at the time?
Questions raised to the court of public opinion.
What DNA test would have been conducted on Brooke at this time and for what reason, and at what cost?
Who ran these DNA tests?
Were DNA tests part of the routine procedure?
Who ran the second tests?
Could she have used her own blood to run the second tests?
Is Bridget an expert in DNA analysis whereas she allegedly ran a DNA test and compared subsequent DNA tests or genetic markers conclusively?
Now I have read the transcripts - the new born screening tests were being run at the same time Bridget was running HER own secret tests.
The baby's diagnosis came to the parents via Dr. Caron.
Carl and Bridget are talking [while waiting] while Dr. Caron is with Nick and Taylor.
Nick goes for testing, Dr. Caron calls the chosen egg donor.
Preparations are made by her to test Nick and the chosen egg donor.
Bridget's knowledge of the bone marrow transplant would have come AFTER her tests were run.
At no time does Bridget enter the story knowing of the bone marrow transplant and/or runs a second test upon any instructions given to her by the bone marrow transplant team to do so.
She rushes into the room [October 17] where the team is preparing, waiting for their own test results on the chosen egg donor.
This being done after bringing HER test results to Nick - the only tests she is shown to have ran.
There is no showing of her running a second test, or being involved in any conversation with the transplant team prior to barging in with her alleged conclusions.
SHE refers to them specifically as running an RH Antigen test.
It is highly likely that the transplant team would be doing their own testing of this nature, so why did she take it upon herself to do a second test of this nature in addition to the transplant team?
They would have found the chosen egg donor not compatible as they found Nick not able.
They would have gone further to find a donor.
Bridget: Have you already done the transplant?
Caron: No, we're just finishing the preparations.
Bridget: Stop. Trust me, you do not want to do this.
Caron: Excuse us a second. What is this about, Bridget? Why are you barging in like this?
Bridget: The person you're about to operate on is not the biological mother.
Caron: Oh,, this isn't more about your theory of an egg mix-up, is it?
Bridget: I just ran an RH antigen test after the baby was born, to be on the safe side. It was my mother's egg that was fertilized by accident. She's the baby's mother.
Now what needs to be done is go way back to when Brooke had her eggs harvested and find out what alleged DNA tests BRIDGET ran on her then.
Again, I find it highly unlikely that DNA tests were done on this baby to determine 'biology' by a doctor or lab personnel having any expertise in DNA testing or analysis.
Using a computer as the only tool?
No flaws there, right?
Bridget running all these tests ON HER OWN?
Carl present - shades of Sheila and her sidekick.
BTW - remember back to when there was question about the paternity of Rick or Bridget where Eric and Ridge were found to be 'close' - how could that be when Eric is not even Ridge's father?
Why was there a paternity question when Eric and Ridge are not even related?
For the record - Bridge NEVER stated to Dr. Caron that she ran both a DNA test and a RH Antigen Test to prove 'biology' - if she ran TWO tests one would think that her DNA test would be far more conclusive than the other, therefore, why did she refer to this one test ONLY when making her declaration to Dr. Caron on October 17 when barging into the room?
She could not possibly have ran a true DNA test because DNA results normally take days/weeks to be conducted with results reviewed, not in a matter of mere minutes.
Unless and until a DNA test is conducted by an independent lab by those having expertise in the field of DNA, Brooke Logan cannot be conclusively determined as the 'egg donor'.
The case is not cut and dry - if there is one hospital mix up involved, then there is the likely hood of another because the first one mix up occurring was covered up by administration, with no safeguards implanted subsequent to a hospital investigation being conducted related.
Under the circumstances Bridget should have her license to practice medicine revoked as soon as possible as is the case with a few others at University Hospital.
