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.

ANC back

We got it back, but it's still quite low at 96. I'm not getting too far ahead of myself worrying about what this means, I do think it's a good sign that the platelets are rebounding nicely!
All I know for now is that it means more 'home' fun. I'm bummed that Hans and I won't make it to one of the cancer kids foundation parties on Saturday while Kevin and Elle have a full day of soccer. And, he won't be able to go to our block party tonight, but he'll hang out at home and the rest of us will be able to switch out. He is helping me with the baking and cooking for the party though. I shall try to focus on what is going on, rather than what is not happening for us!

Okay - that's our update. We don't recheck until we go back for a TCH office visit with Dr. Russell.

Oh, gosh!

Each gain is to be celebrated!

The "confinement" is difficult at this time of year, but you are making a grand time of it...becoming master bakers!

Hans...we will think of you Monday afternoon as we decorate Christmas cookies in the classroom! 20 busy pastry chefs!

Thinking of you with love and hugs,
Aunt Susy
