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.

ANC Back Up

Thanks to Carla at Kiss the Moon for another cute pic. Yes, we even brought Honey on our photo shoot. She's even less photogenic than I am! She can't sit still or keep her huge tongue in her mouth. She's crazy but sweet.

We went down to TCH yesterday for labs and an impromptu office visit. Hans still has this cold and I wanted to get him all checked out. Dr. Russell said his lungs were good, and didn't find an underlying issue. The good news is that his labs look fine. HGB 9.9 Plts 3-something, and an ANC of 1600. He said, good, I can have my friends over! Yay.

I got some NEWS about our next Bake Sale. The 3rd Floor Foot Bridge at TCH is going to be under construction next month, so our Bake Sale is not going to happen 12/3/10. Thanks to everyone for their ongoing support of these bake sales! We'll be back at it in February for the Valentine's Day Sale. The bridge is already booked for Friday 2/11/11.

Also, my uncle made it out of surgery, and last I heard, he was supposed to be going home yesterday. He was up and eating and all is well.

We return to CHOP for routine scans next week. We will be up there at the same time as two of our little NB pals Lily and Elijah. Hoping and praying for good news all around.

Peace, Love and Cure,

Also, that photo is really special!
