I figure it's about time I posted a pic or some fun news, so here ya go.
Santa brought Hans this cool bike - Transformers Motif and all.
Our weather was perfect on Monday and Hans had perked up some, so we went on a ride, quite a bit further than we'd usually take him on his old, much smaller bike!
New bike = new freedoms!
I took the girls (Elle and her friend Kelly) to our local winter skating rink last night and Hans and Kevin went out and invested Hans' Christmas money in a new Nintendo DSI (hand held video game), his systems see a lot of wear and tear with all our travel. It's good to have one working well with our next trip coming up next week:)
I would like to extend a thank you to the National Childrens Cancer Society! We just learned that they will help underwrite many of our travel expenses for our trips back to CHOP. This is certainly a blessing, so I wanted to share the resource with any other families who might find themselves in a similar situation. It is wonderful that there are such resources available.
On the not-so-fun side, Hans was up in the middle of the night complaining of back pain!!!??? He shed a few tears, needed a pain med and a hot bath at 1 am. So - I don't know what is happening here, but these mystery pains do often pop up in the days before scans.
