Abbey, had surgery at out local hospital in the end. Debulking and removal of the superficial part - not all the deeper component was removed. We found a wonderful surgeon that visited the local children's hospital. Surgery was last week and stiches out tomorrow. They said her hemangioma was stubborn and not involuting with any significance and best to have surgery before school. Finally a surgeon in the UK that understood our concerns. I will see the results tomorrow and quite nervous but I know that there is a lot of healing to do.
