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.

Hans was discharged today. His vitals settled right down. It seems that a big dose of Hydrocortisone did the trick. We struck out with the dental OR slot for tomorrow. BUT, it may just work out for Hans. We are using an antibacterial mouthwash, and we'll give his jaw/neck and mouth a break after he completes this round of xrt tomorrow. We are now hoping they will get him into the Dental OR next Weds. He has dental pain flares off and on, but we are trying to stay on top of the pain (meds, warm baths, topical ointments, mouth wash, tooth brushing and rinsing!) That's the scoop for now!
