Default We live in Tallahassee, FL

Jacksonville, Orlando, and Atlanta are places we can get to fairly easily. He was seen by a dermatologist and infectious disease doctor in the hospital. The dermatologist did a biopsy and came back with that diagnosis. The Infectious disease specialist ruled out staph, strep and herpes infections. The "adult" dermatologist said it was too complex for him to take on after discharge. The pediatrician is trying to locate someone she knows in Atlanta, but I don't know if Florida HMO will cover out-of-state consults.

I'm so new to this site and found a lot of information here. We haven't even gotten a copy of the Pathology Report yet. I read about PELVIC hemangiomas. He has a sacral dimple, but I can't remember if an ultrasound was done (I think it was done and was negative).

I'm a worry wart. He sleeps comfortably, until he passes gas, or has a BM or urinates -- then he's inconsolable for 30-60 minutes.
