Now Tony is studying to be an RN, and school is his "thing". Not only is he doing exceedingly well, but he actually enjoys it. During the recent winter break he mentioned on a couple of occasions that he was ready to get back into class. Imagine the confusion it causes me to hear this, knowing well how much he struggled and disliked school 20 years ago. Thankfully the years have changed his perception of school, and I'm so proud of him. I'm his number one fan, and I'll continue to cheer him on, just as I did as a wrestling manager watching him wrestle back in 1990.
Today my brother received an email (below) from his school, and when he texted a copy of it to me I could not get the grin off of my face. He's come a long way, and I know that there is nothing but success in his future with the outlook he has.
