I have been tracking Avery's hemangioma's for the past few weeks by taking pictures and I do notice her lip has gotten worse but her shoulder and hand have stayed the same. Actually her shoulder is starting to grey in the center (hopefully a good sign) I am hoping that since she is almost five months old they will not get very big, since they seem to be growing at a slow pace. Just thought I would post some pics to see if anyone's child had similar hemangiomas that werent very fast growing or aggressive and how it turned out. I appreciate everyones help and advice! Avery's next appt with Dr Waner is July 10th.
