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.

Just wanted to share this picture Elle took on the iPad today.

We are doing fine. Hans' counts came back LOW...we are scraping the bottom of the barrel here. ANC 250, Plts 7, HGB 10. Sigh. Good thing we are getting stem cells Tuesday.

We rec'd two more packages! Thanks Aunt Holly/Uncle Michael for the Bionicles and thanks anonymous, for the Transformer! :)

The Chuck E Cheese celebration is on hold due to counts.

We've been on a mad roll with getting things done around here since getting back. We finally have one of our three vehicles registered in the state of California. Two are in process. (Registering your vehicle is the type of task that doesn't get done when you average every other night in the children's hospital.) We are getting set up with a solar panel company here in town, going solar and we're really excited about it! Elle and I picked out a new sleeper sofa for the guest room:) I want to plant a small vegetable/container garden, but Hans wants to come with me to pick out the starts and seeds, so that project is on hold until he can get out in the stores with a better ANC. Kevin is cranking out the floors. He is on his last room of the hardwood install job. (We still have a couple of areas to tile, though!)

That's the scoop, thanks for checking up on us. I'll post more after Tuesday's stem cells.

That is the sweetest photo, Elle has a great eye. Good luck with stem cells on tues, hope he is back to feeling strong soon.

p.s. I think we may be the anonymous transformer gifter. At least, it should have gotten there by now.

Great photo Elle!! Praying stem cells boost Hansie's counts quickly so he can get back in the classroom and out gardening!

Love,

GRAND photo, Elle...GRAND GUY! What a team!

Spring is in the air! Gardening is so much fun! Planting an edible patch will offer great culinary/edible adventures!

Enjoy it all!

Love and hugs,
