Hi Katie!

That's great news that your daughter's hemangioma has stopped growing.

My daughter just had her first laser treatment last week so we're not seeing big results. It's kind of hard for me to tell since we see her everyday but it seemed that the little "halo" of light pink skin that surrounded the hemangioma was gone within hours of the laser treatment. There is a halo around the hemangioma again but I'm guessing it's because the hemangioma has shrunk slightly and the halo maybe gives an indication of the area of shrinkage? It's just a guess. I'm going to try and take some pictures tonight and compare them to some pictures I took last week. Maybe I'll be able to get a better idea of what's going on that way.

Good luck with your daughter's treatment!

I feel like a huge load has been lifted just knowing that we're taking a step in the right direction.
