    MedFlame03 - speedy recovery to you. You have come so far and exceeded what the doctors thought possible. Your determination and williness to work through it have done much for you and you are an example to others.

    without going through all of this I hope your diving again. I know I took a 12 year break, lost my leg but now I'm back in it and I love it! I still feel "normal" in the water.

    Hey MedFlame! How are you doing? My apologies for not writing sooner, but thinking about you and if you are back in the water. Keep IVS in mind and maybe you can make it to Dutch this summer?

    I just got the ok to go diving again. I saw my lung specialist this past Thursday. I am aloud to dive to 30 ft. I am working with my lds here now. I will go out and do the ow in May or June. Water is to cold for me now. lol. I have been able to do all my skills. So I am not worried about that. I just need to work my way down again. Going to do it slow. Just to make sure for myself. They did all kinds of tests. All came back fine. I just know it scared me bad. So taking one day at a time and go That way I will be knowing and enjoying at the same time. :) But over all I am doing better. I have more surgery down the road. But not for a while. We talked about it, and we are just going to do therapy for now.

    Thank you Pasley. I will try to keep you all up to date. I know I am very excited about being able to dive again. Just wish the weather would cooperate a little more. LOL
