We learned yesterday that the new arm of this trial will not start today as hoped. There is basically a paperwork gridlock/logjam. Every i needs to be dotted and t needs to be crossed before all numbers are crunched and the new phase is approved. I guess some of the data still needs to be submitted before the data can be analyzed. That's what I get out of it, anyway.
We have been advised to catch a flight and have a nice long weekend at home. We hope to get a call Monday, telling us to come back out to start Wednesday. For the time being...I'm okay with it. As long as Hans starts a trial by Wednesday of next week, he won't need to be rescanned. If we go beyond that point we are looking at Plan B, C or D...
Hans is really going with the flow here. He is looking forward to getting back into town to see his dog, swim in his pool and hit our two favorite chicken restaurants...Popeye's and El Pollo Loco. We won't have Kevin til Sunday. He is flying out to Seattle today to attend his Grandma Lorraine's memorial. Elle gets out of camp today. My mom will pick her and Greta up from their special week at Camp Robbinswold on the Hood Canal. I went there as a girl too. It's gorgeous and beautiful! I can't wait to talk to her on the phone! I'm also ready to skip out on this East Coast heat wave. I'm sure it's gonna be hot in Bakersfield, though.
Thanks for checking up on us.

- 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.
