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.

okay labs

I actually got a 'posed' pic of Hans in the Laundry room he helped me paint! This is kind of a big deal - he doesn't usually like to say cheese. Anyway, I wanted to put up a quick post that labs were okay yesterday, Day 10 of Round 21 of Millennium... HGB 11.1, Pts 200 I think, ANC 1200 (it did take a little dip because we were delayed starting this round so long, I think, that it's been well over a month since his last shot of Neulasta). And NO TEARS for this shot of Neulasta:) I guess he's developing his coping mechanism and incorporating Neulasta into his routine. He did take A LOT of deep breaths!

Wow, first a fabulous vacation and now a move home to California! Hope all goes well in switching houses and setting up a new medical team.

Hans looks good - glad he's dealing with the shots.

I'm sitting on the porch with Maggie, our just turned 1 yr g'daughter, enjoying the birds and the day. Hope you and Hans are enjoying this spring also!

Great pose, Hans!

Soon you will have your very own small business, and people will be contacting YOU to paint their home, Hans!

Enjoy spring...there must be a few daffodils and tulips nodding joyfully in the breezes!

Love to all,
Aunt Susy
