Thumbs down IMO, Docs are too passive

In my opinion, they need to take your baby's multiple H's very seriously. I had to be agressive with seeking my daughter's treatment because her pediatricians/opthamologists/dermatologists said the same thing. yet, it kept growing and is now making her eye droop. Good thing she has a surgery scheduled for May!

I wish you the best of luck. The MRI is going to be very important to look for internal H's. I request an MRI for my daughter to check out her eye region, but the doctors told me I was overreacting. Either way, seek all the opinions you need. A Hemangioma Specialist is going to be the best bet though, because they know more than any other doctor about these birthmarks.

Best of luck. We'd love to see photos...
