Just found out about this. I have no clever words. I too was unaware of Doug's 'other' talents, much to be admired there.
I wish Doug the very best for the future and hope it goes well. Take care
These sorts of things always seem to happen to the best sorts of guys. Good luck, Doug. I hope you recover well. I have always followed your racing career with interest. Another guy I watch is Mike Edwards. He is also a hard doer.
Hang tough Mr. MacRae.
My wife had a brain tumor/surgery two years ago.
It was a tough road but she is one stout lady and now she's hounding me and all my horrific habits (beer, rum, tequila, fishing, hunting, riding motorcycles, cussing, sneaking a cigarette once in a while, the way I drive) like never before.
Health is one of the most important things so take time to recover as it should. You need to regain strength and rest. Do not think of anything else. I would even say "enjoy" this moment of calm, you who are so used to living at 100 per hour.
