Hello. My name is Jessica. I am the mother of a sweet baby girl who is 11 weeks old. After brining my "perfect" baby home from the hospital about a week later I got a phone call from the Dr. telling me she had PKU. The next few weeks were a blur (as if they weren't already from having a newborn). We were going to the hospital every day and it was very tiring. My heart was broken when I started reading about PKU. It just didn't seem fair that an innocent baby should have to deal with something like this the rest of her life. Sometimes it is like it doesnt exisit until every Wednesday and Sunday evening rolls around and I have to prick her heel to send in her blood samples. It tears my heart to pieces to listen to her and watch her cry so hard. I stress out often about how PKU will affect her life when she gets older - school, friends, cooking, etc. Any encouraging advice from anyone would be great. I would love to meet other parents to young children with PKU. Thanks!
