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.

Up in the air...

We had a pretty busy weekend. Elle had a sleepover Friday night and was just a bit groggy on Saturday morning game. Saturday night I helped my friend Vicki celebrated her b'day in style! We had toooo much fun! Thanks, Vicki! Then, Sunday, Elle had another game and Hans made it out to Main Event for Adrian's birthday. I'm glad we were able to squeeze it all in.


We had a wild time - but all in good fun...Brenda, Marlene, Jessica, Dana, Vicki, Me, Carmen, and Angela. Look out, Houston! Ha ha...

Hans is pretty mellow this week. Yesterday we went out to the park and fed some ducks. It was pretty exciting - they were chasing him.

He was having just a touch of arm pain once again over the weekend, so we're asking the docs what we should do now. Thankfully, he is using the arm like normal. He is actually moving and grooving! Kevin and I always feel great relief when we look over and see him using his arm doing his expressive dance moves. I'll have to sneak a video of him one of these days...

Hans and Optimus...

Also, Hans is getting a new teacher this week. Mrs. Nusbaum will be staying home with Mia (who is doing pretty well, I understand!!!) and a new permanent teacher was hired to replace her and started yesterday. I have a meeting with her tomorrow. So, with any luck we'll work on getting Hans back to school on Thursday. Just seems like everything is up in the air. It's sort of hard to operate with everything up in the air - but we're plugging along.

Thanks for checking up on us.
