Luke Teat

Luke Teat

At 3 days old we found out Luke had PKU, phenylketonuria. We knew he was special since birth as his apgars were dangerously low, he was put on a heart monitor and he had myoclonic jerks that we have never seen before. Luke has had over 100 fractures due to his Ehlers Danlos syndrome, he was dx with Chiari, osteoporosis, asthma and central/obstructive sleep apnea.Unfortunately he also suffers from OCD and anxiety. He has had many rough roads but he is the happiest child I have ever known. we are so lucky God chose us to be his family.
