For smurph,
I tried to get a picture of my boy but he was moving around too much. The hemangioma started to bleed but has stopped and is now caved in. the hemangiomia is small is only on his lip. The doctors said that it caved in due to the fact that he is now bottle feeding and the hemangionma is taking the shape of the nipple of the bottle. He does fine when he is feeding and the hemangioma does not appear to cause him pain even though it bleeeds sometime. We are going to see a dermotologist on Monday. What happened when your daughter's caved in. One doctor said it was a bad sign because it could cause his lip to look like a clef lip and another doctor said that it was a good sign because it was healing? Any thoughts?
