Default 6 months on Propranolol -- before and after

I have been coming to this site for over 6 months -- mostly lurking to find information and see what has worked for others. My DDs H appeared when she was 5 weeks old.. looked like a scratch under her eye.. quickly became almost as large as a kidney bean. A pediatric opthamologist confirmed it was beginning to effect her eyesight.. from there we met w/ a ped dermatologist who works w/ a ped cardiologist and on july 1 we started her on propranolol.

It has been 6 months and if you didn't know she had an H under her eye you never would. Propranolol worked wonders for her. I know when i was just starting out on my journey the one thing i wanted to see was before and after pictures to see the difference so i wanted to post this in hopes it helps comfort someone in their decision!!!

She is 9 months now and we are going back to the ped dermatologist at the en of the month to talk about slowly weaning her off the medication!

Here she is the day she started propranolol
and a picture taken in the last 2 weeks.
