About Me

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.

Round Three of ICE started

Hans got admitted yesterday for ICE. So far, so good. I'm very pleased that this chemo is just three days. We hope to beat Thursday night traffic out of here. I checked everything off my Christmas list, so it is actually okay that I'm locked up for a couple of days and don't go overboard.
My mom had an awful fall off a ladder while painting a room in her house. She broke a shoulder and has some stitches in her face:( She will find out today if she is cleared to fly down here for her Christmas trip.

That's about it for now. Hans has my laptop so I am typing this post on my phone. He just found "Conqueror of All Worlds", an online video game on Cartoon Network.com. It seems to be a fun distraction for this stay.

Sounds like good news for Hans. Hope all goes well and you get out in time to enjoy your Christmas!

Grandma Stephanie will be there with bells on (ok, a sling)
Nothing would stop her to see all of you! Merry Christmas to your family!
