Default Starting Propranolol soon...pics attached

We have a baby girl of 4 months, and as you can see in the pictures her hemangioma is DANGEROUSLY close to her eye. Children's Hospital has been monitoring it and feels it would be a good thing to get her on Propranolol.
I have heard some great stories, and wanted to share ours...will keep you posted on her progress.

Beautiful!!

I have heard a couple of not-so-great stories (I get to hear a lot of stories), so make sure to stay on top of them as they monitor her.

Let us know how things go!

Thanks SO much
The 1st dose she is getting at the hospital and then she will be monitored for 6 hours. Mommy is very nervous...but she will be well taken care of.

Pookey - how did your daughter's treatment go? I'm thinking of starting my baby girl on propranolol but am really nervous. Her H is about the same size as your daughter's in the picture.
