That is wonderful news. My son has a facial hemangioma as well, on his cheek/eye area. He also had an MRI done to make sure it was not in his eye and brain. We see our pediatric dermatologist again tomorrow and my husband and I plan to ask about propranolol treatment. He is currently on prednisolone, but we are dealing with awful side effects. I am eager to see if propranolol would work for his H. It is great to see and hear about success stories with this treatment. I look forward to seeing more progress pictures on your blog. Thanks for posting!
