Welcome, I'm late in posting as Rog and I just got back from a trip....Sorry to hear about your brother and I understand your concern about what to say to him. I talk to Rog as though he wasn't ill. I am absolutely aware of his limitations, but I also want him to be as independent as he can manage, and having that in mind, includes normal conversations about daily life; so what would you say to your brother if he didn't have this diagnosis? Rog still has his sense of humor and teases like he always has, just takes a little longer as he has to type his comments to speak. I hope the two of you stay close!
