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.

So Far, So Good

So far so good, once again. Day Three of Round Three and all seems to be well. Of course I'm always optimistic, but, I remind myself that we didn't get into any trouble until day 8 last time around.

We have a meeting set for Wednesday of next week to get Homebound Services underway. Until then - Hans and I have been packing in a little fun and squeezing in some raking on top of the usual stuff (keeping house, emails, etc eto.) Hans just inherited Elle's old ipod. He is rockin' his favorite tune... BIG TIME RUSH. (This is the theme song from a new series on Nick about a boy band.) He knows how to hit replay for that song and Kevin set him up with some little speakers. I tried to get some video of his dance moves, but I'm waiting to grab the perfect little clip before I post!!!

Other than that - much swinging! We've raked our way to the play structure. So that's good. We have a ton of pine trees here. I actually counted the other day and I now know we have 34 Pine trees in our yard! It's not a big yard, just a lot of trees! The needles fall all year. On top of a few oaks we were ankle deep this time of year. We're almost done with the front and can make some headway on the back tomorrow. I'm going to ask Elle to post soon about Cookie Sales. Her Troop is doing another cookie drive. This is her fifth year to sell Girl Scout Cookies and I can't believe that!

Have a good weekend.
