Thanks Missy! I met with her teacher today and it went really great. I also bumped into the counselor when I was at the school and chatted with her about it and actually got a chance to share a bit more about Faith's hemangioma journey with her. She was amazed and I think both the teacher and counselor will be of great support to Faith. We have decided to keep it really low key and try not to make a big deal out of it, but just explain it for what it is (if the other kids ask), if needed.
Also, last night I emailed Leslie Graff and she gave me a lot of great advice as well and was so helpful. I really don't know how I would have made it through this hemangioma journey without VBF (and the old MSN site too
People here have been amazing (you, Corinne, Donna Ducker, other friends I've made, the doctors who have emailed me, the parents who have shared their photos and experiences with me over the past 6 years )....I seriously would have been lost without this place....it has transformed a difficult experience into a blessing really. My only hope is that I can help others the way that you have all helped me.
