The news is not what we had hoped for. It seems Hans' little lymph nodes are just filled with Neuroblastoma. The right side seems to have stopped growing but the left side is getting bigger with disease.
Our oncologist got the official pathology today and worked up our options for us.
We have opted for a big guns chemo combo called ICE. ICE is a combo of three chemos that should hit Hans' system pretty hard and we hope the NB as well. He will start this chemo tonight.
It is a pretty somber night for me as I lay to rest my hopes of some treatable infection. We will switch gears and try to get a handle on this runaway train.
Oh, my baby. Please lift this little boy up in your prayers and lavish him with loving thoughts of successfully beating back the beast within him once again.

- 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.
