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.

Greetings from Waikiki!

We made it! I never put it out there b/c I didn't want to jinx us...but here we are in Hawaii for Spring Break! It was a little touch and go there with the possible strep on Monday. But, it was a good call to push the flight back a day. I think my primary God-given gift is working the phones, pleading my case, and getting change fees waived! Hans is doing okay. What a good sport. He's very congested with a bad little cold. I brought an entire regular sized box of Kleenex with us on the plane. We got here in time today to go for a stroll along the beach and a dip in the pool. It's an 8 hour flight from Houston, but luckily it was really pretty comfy.

Now all we have to do is try to remember how to be on a real vacation. We're up for that challenge! We are just gonna hang out on Waikiki beach tomorrow, try to catch a wave or two on the boogie board. What a great venue for starting Round 21 of MLN8237.

Thanks for checking up on us!
