Wow! Thanks for sharing. He is so cute and he looked so brave. I'm glad you have that past you. I know how relieved I felt after my daughter's surgery. Keep taking pictures. It is good to look back and see the progress.

Default removal

That is great new about the removal. We are thinking about removal as well for our daughter who is 8 months. Did they say there will be much scaring? My daughters is on her cheek and is about the size of a nickel. Doctor said we could do propranolol but I dont feel comfortable giving her bc she is so little. I think we are going to be dealing with loose skin so i just think the removal would be best anyway. Your son looks great! Cute little guy.

Thanks everyone, Nolan is doing great and seems to be healing up well!
Katie G Dr. Yazdani from London, Ontario Sick Kids Hospital did it. It still has the train track look but I'm really hoping that will heal up with time. We have our check up on July 12th so we'll see what the Doc has to say about how it's healing.
Smilo143 we were faced with the same decision as you when Nolan was also 8 months old. We almost went through with the propranolol treatment until we did the vbf live chat. We spoke with Dr. Warner and he strongly felt that the propranolol treatments would be a waste of time because Nolan's H had already grown so large he would still need surgery in the future. We were very relieved not to have to do the treatments, however surgery was still a little nerve racking but we feel was the right decision. Best of luck on your journey!

Thank you for sharing! My daughter will be having surgery in October, and it really helps to see these pictures and know what to expect. Your son is adorable, and I am so glad he is doing so well!

What a little trooper he must have been. My daughter had surgery a year ago (at age 2), hers was a little smaller but right at her hairline. I hope his healing goes smoothly, thanks for sharing!
