I am such an incredibly proud wife tonight! I heard from Kirby (finally) after Beast Week… he has totally amazed me. First, his flight made Excellence in Beast Week, which is a great honor. Basically that means they rocked it! Then to top off the awesomeness, Kirby made Thunderbolt on his final PT evaluation with a 96.4! That’s not so bad for an old man. I am just in awe of his perseverance. He had such a challenge ahead of him with this whole experience. It’s hard for anyone, but to go in at his age, knowing that he almost didn’t make it in terms of his weight and shape, leaving a family and a career, and totally trusting God to help him succeed… it’s so amazing, and I am so proud of him.
