About Me

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.

cinco de "mario" to "mudder's" day

We just had a nice little whirlwind weekend with Kevin home for the weekend. It was nice! I took the kids out for Los Cucos on Thursday - and I got a kick out of Hans calling it Cinco de "Mario". Kevin got into town and Elle had already left for her final Girl Scout Campout with her troop. She got a pass to go to a soccer game and managed to get a goal in her last game with the Texas Rush! Yeah. For Mother's Day we took a hot little hike up to Spring Creek at the Montgomery County Nature Preserve. Hans is a water dog just like Honey!

Hans is now on Day 4 of Round 23 of MLN8237. I actually took his temp this morning to find he is fighting off a fever - at just 100, it's not enough to call the docs yet, but I've cancelled his school today to watch him like a hawk and make him eat, drink and rest and hopefully we can dodge a big fever! Yikes.
