Michael is Matthew

Posted by Jim Jagielski on Wednesday, May 27. 2009

In a little less than 2 months, my younger brother, Michael, will be 44 years old. That, in and of itself is enough to make you feel old. But that's not the watershed issue with this. It's just than that means that for almost 34 years, Michael has been in and out of institutions, hospitals, group homes and our homes. You see, Michael is Matthew Despite this surgery, and a host of others, as well as numerous medications, most of them experimental, Michael is still held hostage by his own brain. And so in July, when we celebrate with him his birthday, and he blows out his candles, he'll not be the only one making a wish. If only it was that easy.
