Hi Sarah, nMy name is Sarah too. My son was born in February. He is our first baby and we had never heard of PKU. I was really scared at first but everything has worked out just fine. Sometimes I still feel overwhelmed when I think about the future but you need to take it one day at a time. I used to worry about having to take blood samples at home but now it’s no big deal. Easton doesn’t even get that upset. Jason and I work together and it’s over real quick. nLet us know if you have questions or just want to talk. We can even talk about poopy diapers!
