PKU?

Anyone out there (besides me) deal with PKU?  I've attatched a video explanation of PKU.  This is one of the tests they screen for at birth.  Thats why they take blood from your baby's heel.  Dont avoid it, PKU is treatable by diet, but neglecting the condition and not establishing a strict diet, your child will most likely grow up to have brain damage.  The sticking on the heel is NOT a vaccine.  Dont fret. 





Yes.  Strange and random things do happen.  But usually only to me, so don't worry.
