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.

Hans doing fine again

Hi, sorry to keep you all hanging without a post! Hans has had a very 'normal' time ever since Friday morning. Go figure, huh? As soon as I decide not to make the trip to Seattle! Hey - we'll take 'normal' any way we can get it, right?

I just haven't posted because we've been pretty busy over here between sleepovers, birthday parties, Volleyball, soccer tourney team t-shirt designing, getting pics with Santa, replacing the old TV that finally bit the dust (much to Kevin's delight;), girl scout meeting and 3 bike rides and completing a handful of lanyard orders, I just honestly haven't had much computer time. Whew. I don't know how I thought I could get out of this weekend???

Hans is back to a more normal energy level for Hans on this med. He hasn't had any further complications from his transfusion. He is just super thrilled with the Holidays. He and Kevin have hung up more Christmas lights now - I think they are almost done.

Thanks for checking up on us. Hans goes back in for a counts recheck tomorrow/Monday. He is supposed to start Round 17 on Wednesday. We have a pretty good idea that his counts won't be back in shape for a little while after that - just anybody's guess as to how long!
