Default Our propranolol success

I have a 7 month old daughter who was diagnosed with an involuting hemangioma at 5 weeks old. At 2 months old she started propranolol after a steroid injection and a month on oral steroids. We are being treated by doctors at UCLA in the eye center because her H was wrapped around her eye and pushing it out of the socket. She also had a few H's onher brain that have also been almost completely removed from the propranolol.
She will have another MRI in a month or so to be sure all the masses are gone. She has had no side effects at all and is doing fantastic!
Here are some pics of my angel!
Here are before pics (taken in Sept right before starting propranolol)

What a great success story and an adorable baby! It's so encouraging to hear. My daughter has been on propranolol for exactly one month and we are rather pleased with the results also.
