Over a Week Old Already!
Drew also has a little red birthmark on his bum, which the doctors called a hemangioma--a type of vascular tumor. This was a little alarming, since the only other person I have known with a hemangioma was my friend Carri's daughter Mercy, who is about Anna's age. She had a severe hemangioma on the side of her head, and we prayed for many years for her and her doctors, as they figured out the best course to treat it. She is looking so beautiful now, though--truly amazing! Anyhow, I guess we'll see how Drew's develops. Right now it just looks like skin that is darker red--it's not raised or anything, and it's not very big, maybe the size of a nickel.
