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.

Toothaches, fever and admit

So we've really been barely hanging in there. I was waiting to post until we saw the doc today. Poor Hans has had a toothache! Of course it started almost as soon as we got home Friday night. Of course it pretty much dominated Hans' weekend and ruined his appetite. He hung in there though. It wasn't until today that he had a bit of fever and some other symptoms related to pain and being stressed (high heart rate, low sodium) Etc etc... So here we are. We are hoping to get in for a Dental OR slot on Friday. Please cross your finger for us, that would be great. I am framing it that I'd rather be getting admitted on a Wednesday when we )need to be here on Thursday and Friday than to have to turn around and come back in on Friday night when we are not due to be back til Tuesday. My other big concern is that with daily sedation and now tooth pain Hans isn't eating well at all and is now at a new all time low weight. He has got two more days of radiation and then scans next week. We'll start our new trial as soon as we can. X no of days will have to pass since last radiation. X may vary by trial. Please pray that he winds up on the best treatment for him!
