Sooooo, it's been a rough week around here. Hans is finishing up his tenth round of ABT 751 and for the most part is doing well. With one exception....
He can be very resistant about getting out the door to school. It's pretty crazy. He definately does a ton better when he's off meds than on meds. So, thankfully today is the last day of this round. I know he loves school and it's been great for him. But, it's like he is getting stuck transitioning from home to car to school. Argh! We are working on it - but don't have a great road map! So, I guess if you can keep those "super cool school" thoughts coming for Hans, we'd appreciate it!
On another note, we are heading out to Schlitterbahn (a water park in the Texas Hill Country) this weekend for a Sunshine Kids field trip. It's going to be a lot of fun. Thanks in advance to SSK for including our family on this adventure. Then, we will then be getting ready for Philly on Monday.
Elle is doing just great. She's getting into the groove of 5th grade. Yesterday she ran for her homeroom representative and after three rounds of voting, she came in a close second and will serve as alternate. Last week's soccer game got rained out and she'll miss this game for the Schlitterbahn trip.
I guess that's about it for now.
- Hans Weberling
- Bakersfield, CA, United States
- Hans was a busy, happy, sweet and fearless three year old when he was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. He fought his disease like a "gladiator" for nearly 6 years. Hans was an animal lover to his core. He was 'guarded' at home by his three cats, Black, Orange and Cotton. He also had his Golden Retriever, Honey, to keep him company. Hans enjoyed swimming, biking, gardening, grilling (he had his very own grill!), horseback riding, playing video games, building Legos, and flipping between Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network and Animal Planet. Hans loved all members of his family and he was a loyal friend. He had to go through a lot of treatment in his life. But Hans powered through it. His attitude was let's get this done! His motivation was always to get back home, to his family, pets, favorite foods and pool.
