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.

Coming Back Up

Good news, we went to our local counts (wow - 40 mins, from home to back home, counts in hand), and Hans' ANC is on the rise. It's 800 now, so it's not too bad. BUT, not quite good enough to start the next round, so we'll recheck on Tuesday back down at TCH. His HGB is only 8.5, but hopefully that will come up soon.

It's pretty much all soccer around here. Elle has had soccer tryouts this past week and it all wrapped up with an end of the year pool party tonight. Elle will be coming back to play with her same group again. We will be happy to be with the same girls next year. They are really nice girls! I always tell Elle I"m glad that they get along so well. For as much time as they spend together, there is very little drama, which is nice!
World Cup fever around here. Kevin got to take today off to watch opening day here with all of us. Go USA! We'll see how they do against England tomorrow morning.

I got official word on my temp job with the Census. Our work is all complete as of tomorrow, though we may get another assignment in a few weeks.

That's all for now. Lara

It's great to know Hans' counts are rising...and the "bug" is on its way out!

It also sounds like Elle is playing with a GREAT group of ladies...the lack of drama is extraordinary!

World Cup drama is another story!

Congratulations on completing the census work, Lara! I am sure it was interesting!

Hot weather has given way to cool, coastal weather...a treat for me!

Busy with summer work and classes!

Love and hugs,
Aunt Susy
