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.

Round 12

Round 12 of the Millennium (MLN8237) is under way. We have Day 2 under our belts now... I am hoping this one isn't too nasty. Hans does seem a little loopy drunk and tonight emotionally volatile.

Hans had his first day of school today! He is off to a great start! He actually has the same classroom teacher that Elle had, Mrs. Parker. Mrs. Parker was and is wonderful! One of those people who seem to have been genetically engineered for teaching. The classroom teacher designs the material, and then the home teacher, Mrs. Owsijuk (Ms.O.) brings it home and teaches it to Hans. Ms. O had a very good first day with Hans. She is a retired teacher from our very own Glen Loch. She is great, and it seems as though the year will go well.

I don't think we have labs til Thursday, but I am having trouble making the appointment for some reason! I think our onc is on vacation and there is no one to write the orders... I'll call again tomorrow.
