Today went better for Hans. Thanks everyone for thinking of him today and sending your thoughts and prayers his way.
I wanted to let you know that he did a little better. I think it helped to be on a good dose of morphine. Hans started the Ch 14.18 at the 5 ml/hr rate and it was quickly upped to 10ml/hr. He tolerated the faster rate for over 6 hours! We had to slow it down at about 7pm when he started to get rashy cheeks. It should run til about 1 am, and then they'll probably give Lasix to try to draw off some of the fluid he is retaining. (They did this last night too.)
Much better day today. We shall see what tomorrow brings. Thanks everyone, for your kindnesses towards our family!

- 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.
