This post is: 
Today, we did it. We hauled mom, dad, and Owen up to Salem to show our support for Senate Bill 9 - the bill that would permanently require insurers to cover the medical foods for the treatment of PKU. Oregon has had this law since 1997, but it is set to expire this year, for some odd reason. Senate Bill 9 removes the sunset clause, and keeps things running smoothly for PKU families. Well, running as smoothly as possible.

The photo above is Owen under the big rotunda in the state capital. And, below, that's mom and Owen with one of the four famous murals in the background. This one shows the wagoneers as they're making the way to the Willamette valley. Owen's first state history lesson!
It was a great day. A wonderful thing to be part of. And, not enough thanks can be given to Owen's Great Uncle Jeff for helping this bill get this close to reality. We'll all raise a champagne flute of Phenex when it is a sealed deal.
