Kelly--I am liking the results of propanolol too. I see your son must have started around 8 months? My daughter started around 5 months and she is now almost 13 months. I was kind of bummed when we started to ween her off and her hemangioma went back up. Any talk of when you will be weening your son off? Would love to talk with you more on this.
