So sorry to hear of you medical issues, but the good news is that you're still with us! Listen to the doc's and keep at that KR.

I highly recommend that you touch base with Dr. Bruce Chien( I went to him for a Class 3 medical when I had some challenges a few years back. He specializes in "difficult" aviation medicals and is on a first name basis with the FAA doc's in OKC. He's a no-nonsense doc and will freely give out good advice. I'm sure that he can point you toward the shortest route to getting your medical back. Don't talk to another AME or the FAA until you touch base with him - the wrong word at the wrong time can cause you a world of trouble.

Good luck!

I think its time that I share this with you. I have been keeping this
news to myself because I had not made a decision as to how to move
forward but now that I made my decision, I think I will share my
situation. On May 7, 2020, I was rushed to surgery to have a Coronary
Arterial Bypass Graf also known as CABG X5. I had three arteries at
100% blocked and two at 80%. Its been a month since that operation. I
was released three weeks ago from the hospital here in Dallas. 
A week after being released I thought about my KR2 project and what to
do. After reading your post about flying here and there for meets and
gatherings I said I want to be a part of that... and I can't do it if
I got rid of my project or worst, abandon it. So I decided to move
forward with my project and its been at least two weeks now that I
have been using it as a source of inspiration to get better and to
soldier on. I posted some updates on our Facebook page a few days ago
and I will continue to make small advances as my recovery permits. 
I may not be able to fly into our meet in September since my physical
activities are currently limited, but God willing I will be there in
person again. I have a great friend that finished building an RV7 and
is now helping me with my project. Thank God for great friends. 
I wanted to reach out to this great group of fellow builders and to
thank you for the inspiration and motivation to keep moving forward in
spite of the trials and tribulations that life throws at us. I want
you to know that my goal is fly this airplane out to these gatherings
here and there which is why we built our little time machines. Blue
skies always...
