I met with the pediatrician yesterday and got a referral to see a pediatric dermatologist. I feel good that this is a step in the right direction. I am not sure how long the wait will be, maybe a few weeks. The dermatologist who saw her hemangioma yesterday mentioned propranolol as a treatment and not surgery. I guess I will find out more at our next appointment. In the meantime I hope it doesn't grow much and I will continue to take pictures.
