Brother Mike in Trouble

My older brother Mike doesn’t know he’s in trouble. Mike is low functioning, autistic and has never spoken. He is inwardly directed, if that concept even makes sense for him. I spent many years trying to understand my brother and, I don’t know him any better than I did 60 years ago. Mike breathes in and out with the help of a ventilator. He only responds to his name with a twitch of a finger and movement under his eye lids. I really hope he doesn’t know he’s in trouble.
