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.

Decking the Halls

I have been slow to post because we're just busy having fun! We are decking the halls and doing more shopping. Once again I have a real sense of urgency to get 'r done while we can. We don't know what will come up after scans, so I wanna get on it now. Hans is truly a Holiday boy. He is a little ring leader in all of the holiday festivities. It's cute! Elle is right there with him. She kicked off the holiday baking by making us some delicious pumpkin cupcakes.

I got a chance to get out and meet another NB mama, Belen, last night here in town. It's good to make that connection. Belen lost her little Ylaria nearly a year ago. I had fun meeting up with her and her pal Jennifer for Mexican food and a Marachi band:). I heard that the TX NB mama's and friends n family did very well at the TCH Bake Sale. They raked in $2660 today! :)

Hans had some pretty Low counts yesterday. They came back at: HGB 10.7, Plts 6, and ANC 100. He is still okay though!

So glad you're having fun at home. Love the picture - Hans must be really proud of the tree to let you take his picture :) Prayers for good scans and a good plan to come.

Love Aunt Holly and Uncle Michael
