Well, I have put off this update for 48 hours because it is not a fun one to read or write. All was going well...and then...Hans started to have some back pain on our way down to the Dodgers game. We made it through the game and stayed in LA. The back pain got worse at midnight Friday night and by 5 am Saturday the lower back pain couldn't be controlled by his oral Oxycodone.
Sooo....we've been inpatient since then. Right now they have him on a morphine pain pump that seems to be taking care of the pain. We've had a couple of different action plans since admission, but the present plan seems to be: CT and bone scan today, bone marrow biopsy tomorrow. It seems we'll possibly postpone therapy as we await this new disease evaluation. Hans is also pretty constipated, so we are working on that. It could certainly account for some of the pain...
Oh, I wanted to share that the TCH bake sale brought in 2650 for the CNCF! Yay. Thanks, ladies.

- 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.
