IV poles are like scooters

Weston has a CaringBridge page now. Go over there and tell them I sentcha. Weston took me on a tour of Childrens Healthcare of Atlanta last night. He rode his IV pole/scooter to the koi pond and showed me how he wants to modify the design for Grandmommy's backyard. We day dreamed about throwing a casting net in there. We talked about how nice it would be to have a chipping wedge right about now.

I love hanging out with Matt and Jennifer and Weston. If things stayed like they were yesterday, it would be a party up in that room every day. They are the most positive, fun loving, joking around, talkative, playful people I know. Seriously. I was super encouraged by their indominable spirits.

In a serious moment, Weston did say, "I don't want to die." And, "How do you know you would go to heaven?" I looked up 1 John and promised to go over it another time. He had about a dozen visitors at the time. A friend even spend the night with him last night!

He will get his port and his first chemo today.

I saw your Momma the other night. I could have hung on to her forever. The P'town kids told me about Weston. Then I saw it on Katherine's CBridge site. I googled him to see if he had a caringbridge site and your blog came up. I just want you to know that you I love you, I love your family, and I am lifting you all in prayer.

Love, Love,
Jasmine Smothers

Hello my name is tantyona smith. I go to school with weston at mceachern high, I actually take French with him. When I found out about him I cried I just couldn't believe that this could happen to someone as athletic and free spirited as him. He's a freshman and I'm a sophmore, we use to make fun of eachother all the time. I love him, he will be in my prayers. is there anyway that I can visit him? Thanks LOVE, TANTYONA SMITH

Tantyona - thanks for your comment. The best way to get in touch with Weston is through his CaringBridge page that is referenced in this post. He had a big chemo day today and I'm sure would love to hear from you!

Jasmine - You are a bright shiny star! We miss seeing you!
