So I'm still waiting to hear something back from the flight doc. I contacted his office and talked with his receptionist. She said it was in his inbox but now the paperwork has been filed away. She said this generally means it's already been sent to the FAA. So she's pretty sure it's on it's way and should be back sometimes this week if I'm lucky. She did say she is going to have the doc call me first thing tuesday. BTW, she also said that first thing Tuesday mean sometimes after 1:30pm.
I also talked with the flight school. Since I'm going to have my hernia surgery on the 30th that may interfer with my training a bit. They said they could come up with plenty of ground school type things for me to do until I was OK to fly again. I really need to get moving on this. I hate making payments for something I can do.
