Sally,

Thanks for sharing your daughter's story and pics. My daughter Emily has H on her forehead and my pediatrician told us to wait and see and my dermatologist said the same thing but I pushed and got a referral for laser treatments and then her H got really puffy and we were sent to a specialist who put her on propranolol.
I cried for a week because I thought it was my fault and that I was being selfish and should have let nature takes it course instead of pushing for all these interventions.
I know now that the laser treatments didn't make her H grow anymore than it would have on its own and that propranolol was/is the best thing that has happened in the course of her treatments but I remember when I was wrestling with my emotions and I just wanted to thank you for sharing. It means a lot to me and will to lots of other parents who come across this amazing forum. Your daughter is beautiful and I'm happy she is through the surgery and healing so well.
