About Me

My photo
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.

New Look

Hi - I have been wanting to play around with a new look and I finally took advantage of Blogger's new templates. Hope this is easy to read, let me know if you have some suggestions! The next thing I want to do is make a link list of a lot of the other NB kids blogs/pages I read..

We got done getting blood. It was all day. Hans zonked out shortly after getting Benadryl. It was no fun, but it is over! The benefit was that I at least knew to pack for a long day before leaving the house. Hans was a super sport until he woke up from his nap. He asked how much longer we had - and I told him the truth, about two hours (his blood transfuses over 3 hours). He had a moment. But, as usual for him, he did better than I did! We are enjoying today. It is lovely. Hans is all souped up - the little Vamp! He was looking like a little ghost yesterday. I asked him how it feels to get blood, he said GOOD. I can imagine. He actually read as low as 6.2 yesterday by the time we got to TCH. We go back in on Tuesday where we shall just see if we make counts and are deemed fit to start a new round o MLN8237.

Check out the new lanyard page where you can order a lanyard, book a workshop, start beading for us from afar, finding homes for lanyards, donate beads, etc etc. NB Lanyard Link I applaud Vickie for her extraordinary efforts on this project! I think I am taking the summer off lanyards myself. Slacker!
