there isn't a day that goes by
that someone doesn't ask
"what's that on her face?"
a part of me wants to reply
"what on her face? i don't see anything"
then the nice person
the not rude person
wants to take the opportunity to educate
the questioning person
of her birthmark
known as a hemangioma
that are more likely
to occur in
who are premature
at birth they usually aren't visible
but about 2-4 weeks after birth they become apparent
which in her case
we thought it was from the tape of the ng tube
but within a week or so after that it became bigger
and a week after that even bigger
and today it's even bigger
(happy two months sweetie!!!)
tell me this is normal
and that the birthmark will go away on its own
because her spot
close to her eye
more than likely we will treat it
we meet with the dermatologist
to determine a treatment plan
her spot will
with or without treatment
so there is your lesson in infant dermatology!
happy 2 months to our sweet emmi!
