Default So disappointing, hemang. still growing

Hi all, I had thought after 2 surgeries that we could have some relief from this evil hemangioma... I have been taking photos every day since Ruby's surgery because I felt like I wasn't sure if I was imagining that it was getting bigger. Today I have proof - a whole new small heman growing right above the surgery scar. I am so sad and disappointed. I will call surgeon on Monday and see if I can get her in earlier than her July 11 follow up.

I thought this evil thing was going to be a distant memory and it is now rearing its ugly head again....
