About Me

My photo
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.

For Fun

Here are a couple of pics for a joyously 'normal' weekend...I could get used to this! Hans complained VERY little about his arm and is doing pretty well...

Elle and Hans...ahhh how sweet! I've been try to catch a good pic for the Christmas Card - that's a great yearly challenge!
Here's Elle at New Moon Friday Night (We didn't go at Midnight on Thursday like a couple of crazy moms/girls we know!) It was better than the first movie, I thought.
I think we'll have to keep trying to get a good photo!

Congratulations to our friend Alex who hit his 5 year anniversary of Diagnosis:NB and is now celebrating Long Term Survivorship. Way to thrive, little bro! He had a blow out of a party with the best balloon animal guy I've ever seen, but, alas, I forgot my camera.

I enjoyed beading yesterday with a dozen or so ladies in Katy. Thanks to Katie, Carlie's Aunt for hosting a great workshop.

We were rained out for soccer this weekend, so I have no update to share there.

Hans has managed to chalk up a few more days "present" at school. Tomorrow we have a meeting to make arrangements for all of his "special needs" at school, i.e. Intermittent Homebound, etc. etc.
