My kid's grandmother has just posted in a status update that the cancer her ex husband is dying from is genetic and her grandkids have to be tested for it.

1) This is the first I'VE heard of it!!
2) My son, one of the "grandkids to be tested" will see that and panic
3) I am not panicking!!

AIBU to think facebook was NOT the place to announce this???

I bet your panicking I would be too, couldn't she have picked up the phone and tell you in person that's just awful, I'm so sorry OP

That is not the place to announce such a thing, you're right. Stupid stupid woman.
Any chance you can log into FB as your DS and delete the post from his wall before he sees it?

Oh no, sorry to hear this.

Do you have any contact with her or is she able to contact you?

Can you call her to find out more and ask her to delete the comment before your son sees it?

yanbu, how awful to find out something that serious on facebook.

she's contacted me now but only because I sent her a message about the status update. Basically it's some throw back from great great grandfather being gasses during WW1. Some kind of leukaemia . Why oh why would you just blurt that out over facebook?

She's just text to tell me to stay calm because her ex husband is a drama queen and probably exaggerating but what if he isn't?
