hi sara,

my name is Catherine and I am also from the Fort worth area. I had preemie twin girls at 31weeks. they are now 4 months. one of the twins Margaret has a large compound hemangioma on her nose. She has been on steroids for 4 weeks and her pediatric derm is trying to ween her off but has a feeling its going to get much larger. He also told me for my daughters hemangioma that they would wait till she is 2yrs to even start laser treatments. I have contacted Dr. Buckmiller at Arkansas Childrens to do the treatments, and she wants to start as soon as insurance approves it. Just thought I'd mention Arkansas Because it is closer. Hope your granddaughter is doing well!!
