About Me

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.

Well, we were home about 12 hours and then a fever re-routed us back down to TCH. We are sitting here in Room 908. We actually got here soon enough to be recipients of some of those leftover baked goods we delivered to the floor. Anyway, for a while yesterday it looked like it was just going to be one of those peek a boo fevers that came and went. No such luck. It keeps popping up and he's been vomiting a little bit. Just sick. He was also complaining that the spot on his head where the tumor is hurt a little bit when you touch it. He's never said that before. Obviously, we are a little concerned about that. But perhaps it is reassuring that the oncs up here are not rushing us to CT (the ER doc had mentioned it, though)??? Scans coming up in two weeks.

Hopefully Hans will turn around and be on the mend soon. He's just sleeping a lot inpatient.

I so don't like to hear our guy is not feeling well.

May Hans' team of caretakers pinpoint his bug and provide him with a bit of relief!!

In the meantime, I will be sending love and prayers for a speedy recovery!

Love you,
Aunt Susy
