He loves to travel and his favorite place to visit is the Great Smoky Mountains.
Christian’s older sister was diagnosed with Propionic Acidemia through the newborn prescreening, therefore we had a crisis management plan put in place for his birth. Within 48 hours of his birth, we received his diagnosis of PA. Currently, Christian eats 11 grams of protein, drinks Propimex-2, and take vitamins daily. We always seem to end up in the hospital during flu season, but other than that Christian has been a very happy and healthy little boy meeting all of his milestones.
