Kelly: I will send a pic of my son to Missy in the next few days so she can post it!

Carii: We've been seeing Dr. Frieden since my son was 2 months old. He's now 5 months old. First she started him on steroids, but the side effects for my son were AWFUL. A month later, the hemangioma started getting bumpy so we stopped the steroids and she put him on Propranolol. He did not have to be hospitalized at 3 months. She just wanted us to watch out for side effects. (At 2 months however, she would have wanted him to be hospitalized.) Propranolol seems to be working well for him. There have been no side effects. Hope the appointment goes well! Keep us updated!
