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.

Rads are at 18

Hans had his levels checked today and he measured at 18!

Whoa - I did have to ask... what does that mean? That doesn't mean it's not working does it?
They said nope. All kids are different. Hans' good news is that he didn't have a lot of disesae to begin with, so there wasn't a lot of stuff for the isotope to bind to!

We will just have to wait out the full six weeks to see if it is working, but I am planning on it working.

Reinforcements have arrived! I am now flanked by both Roxie and my mom. Hans couldn't want for a thing. Roxie brought up the loving care packages that Grandma Kathy and the aunts from Scottsdale sent. Hans' little fingers are busy with Lego and Bionicles.

Elle has safely arrived in TX. I know a pedicure has already happened and she's on her way to a play this evening. I'm glad she is having some fun.

Kevin's well is busy busy, so we are planning on having him tomorrow now. We shall see. I think Hans can handle that since he got some nice big packages today. That's pretty good excitement for one day.

Hans' ability to rapidly diminish radiation counts is evidence of his resilience! His cool demeanor allows his body to focus on the tasks at hand!

So pleased Elle is having fun just being a girl! Whoo Hoo!

May Kevin's well stabilize and find him on his way! I know the wait is difficult for him, too!

Loving you from afar!

Hugs and kisses!
Aunt Susy
