Many years ago we tried a technique to lighten it via a plastic surgeon. The treatments were painful and we didn't see any progress so my son decided to stop the sessions.

So, today he is going for a first laser treatment with a plastic surgeon in Dallas who specializes in birthmarks and other vascular anomalies. The doctor is also a professor at UT Southwestern. My oncologist is at UTSW so my confidence level is pretty high.

I sure hope this doctor can help. It's to the point where my son has problems with the birthmark reacting to his safety glasses at work. It has swollen and become quite red. It has always been something that shakes his confidence so removing or lightening it will really help both emotionally and physically.

Hope this goes well. Undecided

Hope things go super well

But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces
