Unless her brother became a neurologist with a concentration in brain functionality, he's just another part of that insane family. BTW--wasn't he the moron who tried to get her to swallow pudding and nearly ended it right then and there? If you're going to do a swallow test--don't, unless you have training and a degree. You start out with ice chips, a tiny amount on the tongue. Since terri wasn't swallowing at all by then, why the hell would be try a viscous, sugary dairy food? Oh, I forgot--because he's fu**ing insane.
This is a little long to read but it shows Terri's brother's love for her and the families ordeal.
