About Me

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.

2nd post today

Hans spent the day in triage again today. He received a second bag of IV antibiotics. This was mostly preventative, as he has been gratefully fever-free since yesterday afternoon. His Potassium came back into normal range at 3.9! He received fluids today as well, which always help him out when he's a little out of whack. And, we are still waiting for our H1N1 results and we will also push back the start date of this next round (Round 11 of a possible 52) one day until tomorrow.

Yesterday when they did his weigh in Hans was bigger than ever at 103 cm tall and 15.4 kilos! Go Hans, way to grow! He's still very little for his age. But he has at least one little buddy at school who is just his size. We love you Federico! He is looking fairly normal now and playing Wii with his daddy. We will just let him chill out and recover this weekend - no soccer cheering for Hans.

Wanted to let you know. Thanks for all your get well vibes.
