Just a quick update, for anyone who may be reading along, and going thru the same.

Nothing with the puffiness has been attributed to the PKU. Seems it is more likely the liver not functioning at full capacity, and this is not likely due to anything more than his prematurity. They are checking lympademia and a few other things, but feel confident on liver.

All the best,
