    I thought I would post here to notify all the guys that fished our divisions that Frank De Francisco has been at the hospital in ICU since Saturday evening . Most of te guys that know Frank , know his body does not take to kindly to anything from a scrape to a major injury . He was found to have a bad case of Pneumonia . I sure hope he gets well soon and is able to make the trip to Ky for our classic . I really would like to see him there . He and his partner did a really good job there last year and came in 11th pl. out of 296 boats ! Please keep him in your thoughts guys .

    Frank had to have a tube inserted on Friday to remove the fluids off of his lungs . I have spoken to him and he isnt doing to good guys . :( You could tell by the sound of his vioce that he was in very bad pain , exhausted and barely coheirent . Hang in there buddy we need ya to be able to go show us how its done in KY !

    He's still in ICU this morning . He is starting to do a little better and the infection is starting to clear up . He may get to a regular room by the end of the week . I dont believe that he will be makeing it to Ky for the classic , but who knows , this man is a fighter ! :)
     
  15. I can't believe he's been in the hospital for 2 weeks!! I never got to know the guy very well this year, but from what I hear, he's a great guy, and from what I know, he's one of the best fishermen I've ever met. Get well soon and God be with you Frank!!!!

    Holy crap, I just stumbled across this thread. I've known DeFran since I was a kid. My thoughts and prayers, Frank. You are da'man and can beat anything. Whip this thing and get your butt back on the water!
