Default Hi

Hi Missy - I don't know if you would call our son's hemangioma as a deep hemangioma, however, he has been on propranolol since 5 weeks old. It has had amazing results. He went through a bunch of tests on the heart and brain before administration of the medicine. Things checked out ok, and we started the medicine. We spent 5 days at Children's Hospital in Columbus. 2 of which were tests being ran, 3 days on the medicine. They kept a close eye on him. They have given this medicine to kids/adults for like 40 years so it is safe. We had lots of family members telling us not to give him the medicine. Needless to say, they have reversed course after seeing the progress. See the link below for pictures. If you want to chat more, you can reach me at johnbrowniii@gmail.com. Good luck and God Bless.
