After a "heart incident" Dec. 2019 I received two stents and in Feb. 2020 my Aortic valve was replaced (to correct a birth defect) at the Ottawa Heart Institute. My Private Pilot Medical was suspended. I resigned myself to not being able to fly again. Feb. 2021 I felt so good I that I passed my pilot medical which Transport Canada placed "Under Review" because of the replacement surgery. Yesterday I received my medical "Unrestricted Class 3" from Transport Canada. It was a long tedious trip back, but for those out there struggling with medical issues I offer my story as encouragement.

Congratulations Bob - thank you for sharing. I feel like so many people give up after something like this, and you have clearly shown you can keep going! To many more years in the sky!
