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.

One more Disneyland Pic


I had to post this pic of my uncle dean and I on that same roller coaster. Fun!

We are about to get discharged. Now the goal will be to stay home as much as possible. We'll see how that goes. ICE has a way of knocking kids counts down and making way for fever, rehospitalization, transfusions. UGH. We'll see what happens. Hans is soooo ready to go home and to eat his home food (spaghetti tacos ala iCarly, Costco rotisserie chicken, cheese dip, etc)! I think I got it mixed up the other day, the right side that they biopsied is much improved, and the left side doesn't seem to be much smaller. The chemo can keep working after it infuses though, so here's hoping and praying.

Thanks for checking up on us.

So why aren't you screaming in sheer terror like Ellie was??? lol That's a great picture. Not sure if I'd have the courage to ride that monster roller coaster. It looks very fast and furious!

Hey Hans!

Hope the ICE does its job and that you have great home health nurses!
Spaghetti tacos sound pretty good - do you use hot sauce on those?

Great job on the legos!
