Just saying thanks and Hi!
Hi everyone! I have visited this site since Karlie's journey began. Karlie devoloped a large superficial hemangioma on her right cheek. It was noticed as a small bruise when she was two weeks old and continued to grow rapidly. We went through the rounds of visiting six dermatologist, two laser treatments, and steriod cream. Thanks to everyone on the site because without you all, I would have not known of the work that Dr. Waner does. Through this board, I found Sherri Foster. She helped us immensely by getting my daughter's pictures to Dr. Waner and providing much needed emotional support ( I was in a state of depression).
Long story short, at five months old,my daughter had the first of her two part surgery. She goes back for the second part this June. Since surgery, the part that was left behind has puffed up but hasn't grown out of the borders. Overall she's healed well and her outcome is promising. I have tried to crop my pics to size, so I hope I left enough of picture behind to be seen. Once again thanks to everyone!
