Probably not the place to post this info but other things have been posted.
Steve Speck called me this morning with news that John Frank was admitted to hospital earlier this week. Doctor said he needed some repair work on his engine.
I called John to check on him and he sounds great. Just borded being in hospital.
He said they would probably do bypass surgery on Mon or Tues.
Keep John in your thoughts and prayers. I ask John if was okay to let you guyd know about him

Just talked to John a little while ago, he's probably already trying to run the place like his rail road. I think that he would rather have Dave Hottman come down and do the bypass procedure...........but I talked him into letting the good folks at the Houston Medical Center do it.
Thanking you for any and all prayers directed his way..................

Please pass along best wishes to John.


To the original post, This is the correct place to post this, as John is one of the more active ones here in Live Steam,/DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/hehe.gif
and 2nd the bypass procedure will be like fixing a clogged super heater on an Accucraft engine./DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/whistling.gif

I saw John today and considering that he just had By Pass surgery yesterday, he is doing very good. The surgery was a success. Other then lots of pain, he is in good spirits and doing well. :)

Steve,

Thanks for the update on John's by-pass operation. I'm glad it was a success.

I look forward to seeing John again when he "has enough steam" to attend a Steamin' at Steve's steam up.

Saw John again today. He is still in ICU but things seem to be going well. Sure hurts when he has to cough though! /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/shocked.gif

John got out of ICU today and is starting to look like his old self again. He was fired up to hear that the Accucraft 4-4-0's have started shipping. He is being told that he will not be able to lift more then about 5 pounds for 6 weeks or more, so I guess he will just have to hang out around the track and tell everyone how to run their engines instead of running his own. :)

Good to hear the news about John. Looking forward to when we can get together and run steam. I know it has been way to hot here to do any serious "steamin".

Thats a good point there Mr. Grunge. But guess who will be lugging his engines around for him......./DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/ermm.gif:) Art the S2 is a beautiful engine and with the Vanderbilt tender will sure to be a Aster classic. I also think that they will run as well as the Berk or Mikado. I am probably going to pass on one.............however, if you get one I know where you can run it any time that you would want to.
