    Hiya Scooby,
    Gee, I really hope your Son gets cured of his illness, terrible to see something like this to a Son or Daughter. I know how you feel because my youngest Daughter has MS and isn't very well at this moment, she has good times and bad.
    Take care of yourself and do keep in touch

    Hope your son does well with his surgery. Our thoughts and prayers will be with you. The modeling can come later, but at least you have your priorities set right.

    Good luck to you and your family.

    Thanks for the update Scoob!! You're continuosly in our thought here in Pa. as well....I know the worrisome feelings you have first hand as my 5 yr. old is diagnosed with Atrial Septal Disorder which is a hole between the 2 upper chambers of his heart. It causes the "clean" blood to mix with the "dirty" blood. Doctors want to wait another year to decide what to do about it. Either a catheter inserted into his heart and a type of "plug" blown into the hole (out-patient procedure) or worst case; open heart surgery.
    Keep focusing on positives and being thankful for all the good things in life!!!

    And do try to work on the railroad a bit...can't wait to see more pics!!!

    well guys thinks for you prayers and thoughts with this surgery my son will have it is not only for his dissorder with the findings from it they hope to cure altimers, m.s , and other brain dissorders but only time will tell where they go with it out of all of the brain dissorders this one is the worst and the one that kills so fast most of the cases of s.i.d.s are being looked at agin from the late 60's to the late 80's..

    but on a better note i did get into the train room last night and got to run some trains ( that feelt so good my mind was at pice for a couple of hours) till the water line over the new add one broke think god i had no land scaping done on it yet and i had fuses wired in. ]

    dose any one have circuit plans for grade crossings and others i have some but have no boards to wire them up with went to radio shack to see if they had some and they had to order them and it could take 3-6 weeks but i got all the other stuff i ran out of when i was their and my brother gave me a big box ov electronic parts to use in building them it is the $$ thing that is why i will build all the circuits i will use

    My heart bleeds for you and your family scoobyloven as you go through these trying times. You have a very positive attitude which will help you immensely as you support your son through his surgery. Having a hobby really helps to give you a little pleasure which I am sure is a big help.
