I am now able to go up and downstairs without getting out of breath, and I can do several flights.
6 months after 7 bypasses, I'm playing golf again, and going to the gym for cardio and weights 6 days a week. With luck, the cardiologist will let me go back to work full time at school in the fall.
Maybe I can even get my Flight Medical back down the road- tho' that seems a bit of a pipe dream, it does help me stay motivated with my fitness and diet routines.
And all of this reminds me how much less important warbirds is than our real lives. I'd love it if on say, father's day, everybody in the game used 100 only for friendly conversations and salutes.
Just one day guys- swear under your breath and don't waste it complaining about 'ho's' or BS cannons or whatever. You might do your heart some good if you can take the anger and hate down a notch. I would not wish what I've been through on anybody else in this game, or anywhere else.

Finn, some really good news and I for one am very happy to hear you’re on the mend mate. All the very best, if you, or anyone else, heads to New Zealand, Ill take you up in a WarBird for real. I have a Stearman available in Tauranga and in the near future Ill have a Yak9V in Omaka, Marlborough which fortuitously is situated in a world famous wine growing region!

I like your idea for Father’s Day too, what date is that?

Again, great news on your health and all the best for the future.

Glad to hear you're on the mend. Good to hear your voice again last night on the comms.
Arena is that much better when you're flying in it.

Are you a teacher?

No wonder you had 7 bypasses!

Keep on keeping on,

I've got an hour in a Dehavilland Chipmunk- I"d love to try a Stearman, much less the Yak! If I get my medical back, I'll offer the same deal to you- except you'll have to settle for my Luscombe 8F. :)
