Introducing...Chuck Mangione

Skin Hemangioma
Originally uploaded by silverzephyr.
Many of you have been curious about what Frankie's hemangioma actually looks like. Here's a photo of a very upset boy who did not enjoy his bath. His frog bath towel is pretty cute though. Anyway, my instinct is that it looks worse than what Frankie actually feels, which is good. We have an appointment later this month to see if the doctor recommends another laser treatment. At this point, we're just trying to keep it contained, not neccessarily "cure" it.

Ah, the varied joys of parenthood...seems kids just love to keep their parents on their toes!

I do like that frog towel -- might have to make one for myself :)

the frog towel is one of the coolest gifts we've received, hands down. it was from pottery barn kids. i am not sure if they have your size or not. oh, the best part is that it says "FRANKIE" across the back. who doesn't love monogramming? i've always wanted monogrammed towels. sigh.

I think it looks worse than it is. Frankie is a really happy, well-adjusted kid. WE went through aperiod where it was pretty bad, but it's not bleeding anymore and he's gotten used to us changing the bandage, so the situation definitely improved alot. I posted the picture since so many people were curious about it.
