My motehr found out I had PKU on the way to a New Years Eve party. All the packet said was MENTAL RETARDATION in huge bold letters. She cried the whole way to the doctor. I turned out amazing. I just finished my first year in college, have great friends (a little bit of a rough childhood because kids didn’t understand the disease), and as long as you keep him on the diet he won’t be a “veggie”. Far from it. If you guys need any advice or have any questions please contact me.
