Hi,
I saw a lot on new mom’s posting so I thought I would chime in too. I just joined the site and I have 9 month old son with PKU. We found out when he was 8 days old and I was scared! I cried for two days. But things are so much better now. Having a baby with PKU made things a bit more complicated but he is healthy, beautiful, and learning something new everyday! We travel to the University of Minnesota for Easton’s appointments and we have seen many ill children at the children’s hospital. I have no doubt there are many parents that would give anything if sticking to a strict diet is all it took to make their child feel better. When I start feeling down I remind myself how really fortunate we are. I’m so happy to have found this site and look forward to “talking” to all of you.
