Okay, Paper Work Sent to FAA

My kidney transplant doctor appoint, after being delayed by a month, went very well.  All of my numbers are within guidelines and medications are working well.  As far as he is concerned he does not need to review my blood work monthly, and opting for every other month. 

So, once my doctor completed his evaluation for the FAA, it was in the mail within 18 hours. 

Now, I begin the waiting game for my approval from Oklahoma FAA so that I can take official exam from my AME.  Usually, they are very reasonable and if I want to start some flying lessons before then I guess I can call and request them to expedite my paperwork.  Until then I might as well do ground school again and re-take my written and see if I can repeat that 93% I got last time.

Hey David, very happy to know your improvement. I'm in the same boat. I had a kidney transplant 6 month ago. I'm doing great, per my doc. I'm a cfi & flew for a regional airlines until my kidney problem. Today I went to see my AME with all the required paperwork. He's deferring all to FAA. As you said, 3/4 month wait. Is there any way to expedite the process? Thanks, Mel

It’s good that you’re feeling hale right before your exam! I really hope you passed it. It’s kinda symbolic I think, like being given wings after working for your goals, which started from a childhood dream to fly. Please post more about the current status of your flight education. Your story has been an inspiration, and I wish it still continues to be so for all of your readers.
