Name: Linda Huston
Comments: Andrew and family, Greetings and love to you all. I just found, by some inspired “coincidence,” a piece of student work that was so good I’d saved it as an example of excellence for future classes. Guess whose name was on it? Andrew!(remember The Giver?)….from 7th grade. It was clear then, as now, that this is an exceptional person. Everything that’s happened in recent months only confirms that BIG TIME! Clearly, so many people have been inspired and become focused on what really matters in life because of the examples of courage and love that your family has demonstrated. God bless you all and “keep on keeping on….” love and hugs!

Comments: Hi Andrew! You may not remember us but you played soccer with our son Kyle many years ago. You both must have been 7 or 8 years old. The team was coached by Coach Fish….remember? The team was awesome largely because of you. We see that you are still quite the leader only now you are touching the lives of so many others. Kyle is returning home today from the Dominican Republic. He went on a mission trip with 11 of his basketball teammates from SFC. We have been saying prayers for you darlin and we are so happy to hear of your triumph through the surgery. Being that Kyle’s parents are both physical therapist, we know the hard work expected of you and why. Remember each little victory is a step to another bigger one and keep feeling all of your friends and family’s love. We all wish to give you our strength and God hears us! You are truly embraced by us all and the Lord. We continue to pray for you Andrew and send our Love in a continuous, constant flow!

Name: Mike Giblin
Comments: Hey man, I would like to share with the people reading your guestbook some of my observations. Not only are your one of the strongest, most couragous people I know, you are genuinely kind, considerate & grateful. I have seen you interacting with those hard working professionals at Scripps & your good manners & the gratitude have impressed many. Your parents have done a tremendous job of raising a fine young gentleman who is not self-absorbed, needy, or whiney given the severity of your condition. Everything happens for a reason. At some point you will see why this challenge has been given to you. While you wait for that sign, eat like like everyday is Thanksgiving so you can get strong enough to kick some butt with rehab. You have become La Costa’s mascot for strength & courage. Everyone is pulling for you. I love you,pal. P.S. Send Kelly home, she has to clean her room.

Name: Mitzi Lea
Comments: Hey Andrew, looks like your getting thrown out of the hospital sometime next week, you better get a move on and get your butt out of that bed! If anyone can do it…it would be you! Don’t give up, we are all cheering you on!…The Lea’s

Name: Jean Bruns
Comments: Good morning, Andrew and family….I am on my way out of the door to meet with a young lady for the summer session of classes.. It will be very different than for you, Andrew, since I will attempt to be teaching basic reading and writing skills…..No test questions like One Hundred Years…:-) We are still holding you all in our prayers, and in our thoughts, every day! It sounds like you are meeting some real challenges at this time, as much with your physical self as with your mental self!…You will rise to the occasion, beyond a doubt. I am certain you are becoming anxious to see all your friends who have been so faithful and supportive, and wish that for you, too. I am still having to bake quite a bit, so you have to get well enough to tolerate some of my goodies for you…Heaven knows you could use the benefits of the calories more than I can despair in them! 🙂 Must sign off and get about my business, but just wanted to say “hi” and to let you know we are Very Interested

Name: Carole
Comments: You go Andrew! I am one of the Grandma’s that prayed you through that morning on the operating table. What a miracle you are! I am absolutely sure that God saved you for a very important reason! 24 years ago we almost lost our 18 year old daughter to a three wheeler accident. She not only survived, she is now 42 and the Mom of four beautiful girls ages almost 4 to almost 14. She said she always knew that God had saved her for a special reason. Four daughterslater, we sure do know the reason. And just to be sure we know His reason, Bella the 3 1/2 year old was born 20 years to the day of the accident. God is so faithful Andrew. Just continue to trust that He has you right in the palm of his hand and He is protecting you and taking perfect care of you.

Comments: Andrew, we have never met but I wanted to give you our deepest prayers and hopes for your quick recovery. Our 2 daughters, Jordan & Allison, have attended St. Andrews the past 4 years. Your mother has been an unbelievable positive influence on their lives. Our children get constant compliments on how polite/fun they are and a tremendous amount of the credit is attributed to your very special mother and her leadership. If you are anything like your mom (of which I am sure you are!) you posses exceptionally special attributes and strength! Our family will say a prayer for you every night in hopes for your speedy recovery. Sincerely, The Larsen Family

She says it’s not any fun, but it makes you better….so she’s hoping you both heal well together.

Comments: Good morning! Just a note this time to let you know we are still thinking about you every day and we are still holding you in our prayers…for recovery and good health! It sounds as if those prayers are being answered each day, too. 🙂 Remember, Andrew, I have always said, “Cream rises to the top!” and you, my dear young man are truly cream! I am so happy to hear, also, that you are beginning to be hungry; I will be keeping that in mind and will look to the time when I can start bringing you some of the “fruits of our harvest” 🙂 We are still harvesting apples and blackberries like crazy. I made a big blackberry cobbler yesterday, just off one of our barrels! (we have 4 others)! I also experimented with an apple-cranberry crumb pie, and an apple-pear pie, and an “Apple Lady apple cake.” Despite the experimentation, they all pretty much disappeared, so I guess they were “keepers.” 🙂 There is not much other news; I am teaching, still; there are a few “loose ends” that

I didn’t ask for wealth or fame I knew you wouldn’t mind. I asked Him to send treasures Of a far more lasting kind. I asked that He’d be near you At the start of each new day To grant you health and blessings And friends to share the way. I asked for happiness for you In all things great and small But it was for His loving care I prayed the most of all.

Comments: I was unable to donate blood yesterday at the Encinitas mobile blood van but I made an appointment for the North County facility this morning. However, when I showed up, I learned that when I made my appointment on line, I must have made it at the Escondido office rather than the Vista/Oceanside office. They were not open for donations today. The staff person however was very kind when she saw my VIP Donor card and I explained that it is for a friend that I came today. She asked if it was for the “young Encinitas boy” and I said “yes”…She said that the staff has been so overwhelmed with emotion at seeing the numbers of donations for him. I explained that if she knew the family, she would understand the response the community has shown. Her reply to me was a big smile and she told me that she has heard the same response from all of Andrew’s donators. I’ll be going back tomorrow for my donation..but we’d love to know the response you have rec’d in numbers of donations rec’d.

(I hope a 500 ml of my lawyer blood from Indio doesn’t botch it all up). I’ve been checking and, yep, everybody is behind you one hundred percent. Some of these young gals on your website are behind you 200 percent! All are deeply moved by your strength. The little problems that many of us allow to become obstacles in our lives are nothing compared to the mountains you have already climbed. You have made a difference in my life. Although I have seen you as a baby, a small boy, and a young teenager, I look forward to knowing you as the wonderful young man that you have become. See you soon.

Someday God’s wisdom will make it very plain, why problems are permitted and how he uses pain……….

Until we’re home with God some answers must wait. Until his plan unfolds we’ll live and walk by faith. Thibeault Family, keep the faith!

Comments: June 9, 2003 11:03pm TBO, I have been watching you through out the entire process, from the first party we had for you at Giblin’s, to the chemo treatments, when you played the drums for me when I thought you were sick, the talks, the phone calls, the birthday party, the memories… You have been an inspiration to many. I was talking on the internet to a friend of mine, and they were complaining to me. Then they told me that they had to stop complaining to me because they had just reminded them self of you and your battle, and how much pain you were going through at the very moment. It is true, as all of us are stressing about finals and high school drama, just imagine all you are going through. It is a major lesson, and has taught me so much. And I can’t imagine the battle you are in, how it is more then10000 times harder then the stress we have now. Back to studying… What a great Monday night.

Comments: Dear Andrew and Family, Vision is a starting moment of clarity – the ability to reduce the complicated to the simple. Vision needs passion for its start-up and patience for its endurance. Visionary people have the ability to articulate in detail a strategy of how to get from here to there. Successful vision has contingency plans for overcoming the multitude of nay Sayers. Achievers are those who latch on to an idea and have the mental map, determination and physical push to turn a thought or dream into reality. Achievers are thinkers and dreamers. They have a natural inclination to dedicate spare moments to replay ideas and opportunities in their mind’s eye. Men and women of achievement often see the whole as something greater than their part in it. They are able to coordinate the efforts of others and enlist their support, resulting in a well thought out plan. A complete vision inspires passionate belief and fuels action. Achievers are simply those who u

Your world is not as simple as it used to be, but it sure sounds like you have enough faith and courage to tackle what has come your way. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Name: Taylor Reeve
Comments: Hey Andrew! I’ve been thinking about you since day one- and have been sending positive thoughts. I know you’re going to be OK because of all the support that you have. So many people have you in their hearts and prayers throughtout the county. I was talking to your mom the other night at Senior Awards and she was telling me how much you enjoyed your quilt. She also mentioned that you were wondering if my square with the twisted faces meant anything. To tell you the truth there’s no “true” or “deep” meaning to it- I decided to draw it on my square because i figured everyone would be writing you messages (which i did too..)– and why not spice it up with a cool drawing! I hope you liked it. You might know but my mom just went through some surgery, not quite like yours– but on the same note.. tumor wise- she’s taught me that positive thinking is the most powerful form of healing. Using her as an example, she’s back at work and livin life again just like anyone else! I truly believ

Name: Brittany Purviance
Comments: Andrew… you are truly amazing! I was so happy to wake up this morning and see the good news about your operation. Your situation had touched me at so many levels-I truly look at the world differently now. For example… On Friday a few kids in my English class were making a huge fuss, because they had to write a poem! I’m just sitting there grinding my teeth because to them writing a poem is a PROBLEM; they are lucky that is the only problem they can come up with! Your situation could happen to any one of us, and for that, people like them should realize how lucky they are. But you know, things like this, are going to separate you from others, by making you stronger. You have always been such a down to earth person in every aspect, and for that I truly believe God has been watching over you so closely. At 16, you have already put so much into the world, and now the world wants to put so much into you- we all love you. Just remember you are in so many of our hearts each and every second.

What else is there but to trust? You are an awesome young man and have endured more that most–trust in the Lord with all of your heart…Proverbs 3:5-6. You give me so much inspiration! Keep up your positive attitude! We love you! The Armento Family

Comments: Hi Andrew, I am a grandma of 4 girls and Wednesday while you were on the operating table, I was in a bible study with other grandmas at our church. Coastline Community Church in Encinitas. A call came from Gary Foster asking for urgent prayer. So, all of us immediatly started praying for your life to be spared,for a complete healing of the cancer and for your salvation. We also prayed for the wisdom and skills of the surgeons. We prayed all the way through the time the surgeons worked to restart your heart. After a few minutes another call came in to let us know that the doctors had been able to start your heart again and they would be continuing with the surgery. I have never had the priviledge of praying for some one who is struggling to live as it was happening and it was a totally wonderful experience for all of us. We truly felt like in some way we helped a miracle happen as we prayed for one. We continue to pray for you with our ceasing as it tells us to do in 2 Thessalo

Comments: Hi Andrew. Sounds like you’re doing battle. Hang in there, the biology kids wanted me to give you their best wishes too. My wife is battling too–her breast cancer-metatisized- went into her central nervous system. But the new chemo applied there is shrinking the number of cancer cells. Keep your chin up. No one knows why we have these journey’s-but there are lessons and wisdom gained by all of them. I will be thinking of you this summer–get better and stop by and see me next year. Mr. Trust

Comments: its 12;06 and i cant sleep andrew. i am thinking of oyu always. today you made amazing improvements and it ASTONISHES me how many people you have touched and inspired. if they are even half effected as I am , then they have had a life altering day. sleep seems liek a waste of time for me right now, i would much rather sit here alone with my cup of tea reflecting on the beauty you shine on me, even from miles away. you are the most pwerful, strong person …not kid, not young man… but PERSON i know. the tears I am crying are in hopes that they will release the pain, but I know you are strong enough to handle anything. i on the other hand (lol) am a wreck. I am looking so forward to hanging out the minute you come back to your house. We still need to watch 8 mile on dvd, so dont forget that tebo!*~*~*~ I have been searching for God all my life and have never felt his power and i didnt even know if i believed in him, but I do know that the gleam of divinity in your eyes is all i need to

The whole thing really hasn’t hit me yet. All I know is we have shared so many fun times together with friends. This website is proof of how many people care about you. The Doctors said you looked great today, they said you looked your best. I only hope the best for you and your family. Your Mom,Dad, Brother, and Tamilyn care so much about you. They have given you their unconditional support always no matter what. I wish them the best of luck as well. I can’t thank god enough that you are alright. I can’t wait until you are awake and we can talk about all this. These past few days have been out of this world. So much has changed since that tuesday morning at 4:30.

Name: Alex Thibeault and Tamilyn Foster
Comments: Up-date from the hospital. Well Alex and I were able to go in and see Andrew at about 7:30pm today (June 5th)and he is looking so much better than yesterday.It was so nice to see him and he has gained back alot of color, and he is able to move his arms every now and then. Dave , Andrew’s dad, printed out the messages from the guestbook, so we were able to read them out loud to Andrew. So thank you all so much for sending your prayers and support. We believe that Andrew heard all your messages as we read them to him. So keep sending your love. The Lord has worked so many miracles already and the doctor said that the bleeding has stopped. The doctor stopped by to say that he thinks everything is looking good, but he is in hurry to finish the surgery on Friday, so they will see how he is doing tomorrow. Well that’s about it, but we are all so happy that Andrew is doing well, thank you all again for your support. Love, Tamilyn and Alex

Comments: Hi Andrew! I had the incredible pleasure (no… really it truly was a pleasure!) of working for your dad at GW Bank in Vista…eons ago! There were two constants at the Vista branch, (besides blowing away our goals!) boxing your Dad out for rebounds and hearing him talk proudly about you and Alex…constantly! (I think it was a diversionary tactic as he knew I was the QUEEN of THE BOARDS!) Needless to say, his love for you is amazing and is boundless and eternal. I know that with all of the support, prayers and love that is being sent your way, there is no question you will ultimately REBOUND from this challenge and be the singular KING OF THE BOARDS in life. My heart and prayers are with you as you conquer this battle! Stay strong!

Comments: Andy, I with you all the way! You are a strong person and I know you were thinking about listening to my band’s music “Undecided” right? Im the Japanese teacher at LCC and I wanted to let you know that my band “Undecided” has a wehsite. Check it out at You can hear our music there too. Andy, we are all pulling for you and your name is very easy to memorize because my youngest brother’s name is Andy too. My brother’s best friend is Frankie J! Do you know who Frankie J is? He sings “Don’t wanna Try.” I used to record Frankie J and my brother Andy at my mom’s house when they were in high school. He can sing! My brother and I recorded some bass guitar and guitar parts for Frankie J’s new album. It was a lot of fun to record that album. I performed only one song on the album and it sounds great! Andy, do you play guitar? Maybe I can give you some lessons some time. Take care Andy and God Bless You! Your LCC Japanese Sensei Donald Quinn Ext.6185

Name: Dave Thibeault
Comments: Thanks to whoever just provided the update on Andrew! 10:19pm in the ICU, and I can’t get into the html of the website. Andrew seems to have stabilized somewhat, but we’re trying to get the bleeding under control. I know that the Blood Bank will appreciate any donors in his behalf to help replace the supply that we’ve just about drained within a single workday. Tonight, pray for clotting/coagulation–just stop bleeding!!! If all goes well on Thursday, they’ll finish the hip/pelvic surgery on Friday. The good news: they confirmed “clear margins”–the surgeon got all the cancer out: 12-14 pounds of it. One suggestion for future reference–if you have a pain in some place for more than two months, force your doctor to do tests until they identify what the problem is–don’t assume it’s just a “pulled muscle”. Andrew sends his love to everyone and can’t wait to get behind the wheel.

Comments: Wed 10 pm. Andrew is back in ICU reovering from surgery #2. It started @ 7:45am & he was brought back to the unit @6:30pm. 45 men & women worked to save Andrew’s life today. About midway into operation #1, Andrew’s heart stopped beating. 3 men took turns giving him closed chest resucitation for 45 minutes until the cardiologist got it beating on it’s own. The surgeon removed a huge cancerous mass from his pelvic area & he feels very confident that it was contained & that he got all of it.The Doctors were able to save Andrew’s leg. Andrew has been given 150 units of blood through out the day’s procedures. As a result of the trauma of surgery & excessive bleeding, his vital organs have been taxed tremendously. He is not out of the woods yet& needs the continued prayers that his family & friends have been offering up. Pleas pray for Andrew.

Comments: HANG IN THERE BRO!!!!!!! Hope the surgery went well. I am going to try and visit you sometime in the hospital. I love you man. prayers for you. -julian

Comments: Grandpa Andrew!! You MIGHT be the coolest person I know (haha stole that from Andrea). Benihana’s was fun… you’d think a name like Jumbo would be a joke. I was a little scared though when I thought Marleigh would get a fork through her eye for stealing a shrimp (I knew better and I didn’t steal any, even though i was starving since that Jumbo wasn’t exactly generous). Mmmmmm mud pie ice cream, just about as yummy as that five bucks is gonna be. I’m lovin the pimp car, and you look oh so hot in it. Don’t buy shoes that are too big for u, just keep being your WICKED cool self, you’re the best!

I’ll know what it feels like to ride in it when your 6 months are up. Ha ha until then I’ll just have to make due with my car. LOL. HA HA. My car just doesn’t have the spark that yours does. All the ladies seem to like the buick. Maybe its your glasses and the sideways red hat. I dont know. Anyways we are all pryaing for you and we hope that you have a speedy recovery. Good luck with everything thats goin on in your life in the next few weeks. When your all better we have to go surfing. You can use the 12 footer and I’ll use my 6 4.

Name: Phyllis and Dan Schmidt
Comments: Dear Andrew: Phyllis and Dan are with you. We’ll keep an eye on your website. If you ever need a break from the routine, you are welcome to join us here in Indio (you don’t even have to bring you Dad or brother). We can pick you up and bring you home. We just got season passes to the San Diego Wild Animal Park and SD Zoo. Even though you’ve probably been there a million times, we’d like to see it with you and friends/family. I (Dan) flunked the written portion of the motorcycle drivers license exam (twice). But I’m no quitter. I’ll take it again and again. So if you see some bald-headed fat dude with butt cheeks spread wide on a bike other than a Harley, it might be me. Pass with caution. Until we see you again, take care! Love from Phyllis and Dan

Name: Julian Harton
Comments: Andrew…we had so many good times in boy scouts all these years. You were the best friend to go hiking and camping with. You always brought a sense of “T-Bonesence” to the troop. It all happened so fast, I didn’t get to hear the story from you, but instead one night at our regular Venture Crew meetings the topic just popped up and i was shocked. I never thought that anything like this would ever happen to such a cool kid. That night at the meeting we wrote you a big giant card out of a piece of bucher paper. I signed my name and said for you to get well, I meant it with all my heart. You will get well Andrew, and you will grow stronger as time passes. And for all of the good times we used to have together, there will be more, I promise you this. Andrew I miss you and so does everyone else I know. We are all praying for you. So stay strong and let me be able to call you T-Bone once again. I love you man.

Name: Lynn Smith
Comments: Hi Andrew! I’m your neighbor down the street!! My grandmother used to tell me to take things “one day at a time”. I didn’t realize how important it is to follow that advice until difficult times arose for me and her words came back to me. We can only take care of things one day at a time. God handles the rest 🙂 It works, Andrew. (I’m sure you’re getting all kinds of advice left and right!) You are in my prayers. Take care, Lynn

Name: Ed Walter
Comments: Andrew… my friend! I know you’re on Mr. Toad’s wild ride, but just hang on and ride it out! Life’s always full of surprises, both good and bad. We prefer the good, but without the bad, how would we know the good was good? At any rate, life’s full of them surprises! If we didn’t have ’em, I guess you could say we’d be dead! Just remember one big thing my young friend… God loves you, and you are precious in his sight (no matter what you look like!) Don’t forget that. Don’t let discouragement rule! He fashioned you in his own image, and there’s not one ache, nor feeling that you feel that he doesn’t feel with you! I’m looking forward to seeing you again soon! Can I swing by (I’ve got a new rope)or do you like to get out? Any which way, let’s do it! C-ya! Take care… and thanks for getting this page up! You won’t believe what the prayers of many will accomplish for you! Ed

Just know that you have a lot of people who care about you, and I sincerely pray that you will find the strength to get through this. You have obviously been a real trooper so far.

Name: Andrew and Walt Bochenko
Comments: Andrew: We have not forgotten!!! You are a gift from the heavens. We remember the canoe trip shared with your brother Alex. What a ride!!! You guys did homework in the back seat — I still cannot believe it. Dedicated to the improvement of your mind and intellect. BUT…. boys are still boys. We stopped several places for a bite to eat and laughed a-plenty. Heading West on Rt.10 near Palm Springs — honking the horn for maybe 60 seconds as a special salute to a driving exhibition (maybe longer if you count my cussing)done by a #$%^@&*&^$# driver. You guys made the long trip home bearable.Thanks! Andrew, thanks for contributing your humor and spice of life. We know you need all the prayers we can give, so know there is a mighty throng out here wanting to bear you up during this time of great difficulty. There WILL be more good times!!! Happy Birthday! Finish out the school year strong. We know you can do it. Andrew and Walt Bochenko

Name: Tom Reid
Comments: Andrew, I was glad to see you in church Sunday and happy for you that you got confirmed. (I don’t know if you’re a poker player, but I told Alex that seeing you two young Thibeaults standing on the altar was “a pair to draw to.”) I can’t tell you how good it made me feel to see you occasionally flash your smile. Not everybody is able to hold up under a heavy load and still share a smile with those around them who fret about lesser things. You’re my hero! For what it’s worth, when I was reading the prayer of the faithful about the sick of the parish, there was only one person on my mind, and that was you. Without trying to push my faith on anyone else, I pray that God gives you the strength and courage to deal with whatever awaits you. Let me know if I can help in any way, big or small. Tom Reid

Name: Gary Ernst
Comments: Hi Andrew !! You are one tough young cookie (Did you get that from your dad, I wonder ?? Maybe your mom — just kidding !!). I can joke about your daddy-Dave as I am an old friend of his from his Great Western Bank eons ago back when he was in good old “exciting” Pasadena. I am praying you are going to be on your way to a speedy and complete recovery after the treatments and hospital care very soon. Take care and keep your faith and believe in it — you have the power of God working for you in the hearts and prayers of many great people !! The “Big Guy in the Sky” as I sometimes call Him — loves you enormously! Sometimes he throws us some very big challenges in life, that may not seem fair at all. Did you know that God tests the ones he is closest to the hardest ?? One look at his only son J.C.’s life will verify that is true. But once you know that He really tests only those he is closest to and that He wants you to be tough and show Him your faith, you will
