Adding Insult to Injury

Freakin' great. I knew that I wouldn't be able to fly (using my pilot certificate) while I was undergoing chemo. I can handle that - I'd feel like crap anyway. Turns out the FAA considers any existence of any cancer (except some skin cancers) a disqualifying medical condition. I am officially grounded for at least 1 year after my last surgery. Then begins the arduous task of making my case to the FAA that I'm clean and cancer free. That'll probably take another 90-120 days after I apply for reinstatement.

This sucks. My last flight (12/24) was technically illegal too, but there you are.
