About Me

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.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving Weekend.

We sure realize how much we've got to be thankful for. Yesterday we enjoyed our least-medical thanksgiving of the past four. Our biggest thanks is that all four of us are here! It was a peaceful and relaxing day. We cooked and ate enough food to enjoy for a week. Kevin is getting good at cooking the "turkey dog", as Hans likes to call it.

My mom flies in today to help us out with Elle while we travel to Philly for scans.
We'll all get to spend a few days together on either end of her visit. She'll spend most of her time taxiing Elle to and from her various events, but they'll squeeze in some fun, too. I think we'll go to the tree farm tomorrow and if we are up for an adventure on Sunday, we'll hit the zoo. Hans would love to turn this place into a zoo... He's always telling us that we need to get a panda, plant some bamboo, and get a giraffe to keep the pine needles off the roof, and get a pool, to a put a dolphin in so that Hans can hang onto it and swim... oh, and an elephant to clean the hot tub with his trunk. I'm sure it wouldn't be legal, but pretty fun. But, I've got my hands full enough with two kids, three cats and a dog;)

Take it easy. Don't spend too much money out there! I know I'm getting into the holiday spending mood, for sure.
