    It’s my brother’s birthday next week. I’m taking the day off work to take him out for lunch and to spend some quality time with him. I’m the only one who now visits him at the nursing home. There is very little change, although he does occasionally come out with a little gem, remembering something tucked away in the past. I was very touched last weekend to hear him softly singing away to a track by the Stylists, he remembered quite a lot of the words, bless him.

    After nearly 4 years since becoming seriously ill in the Philippines and being repatriate back to UK, his partner has (understandably) now moved on and no longer visits. He has three sons in Philippines who are desperate to visit him but can’t, and one in this country who no longer visits.

    The moral of this story ………. PLEASE don’t cut yourself off from your family, you never know when you might need them and they might be all you have left if things go horribly wrong
    Thanks for the update regarding your brother Rosie, you certainly are a amazing and wonderful person with unlimited emotional strength and loyalty, just wish there were more people in the world like you!

    Rosie, I'm sorry to hear about your brother's partner and son have already moved on and stopped visiting. Your brother is lucky to have you as a sister. I really admire your love and care with your brother. I wish both you and your brother all the best.

    Rosie ... I am so, so sorry to read that your brother's partner and one of their four sons no longer visit him.

    Whilst it may be understandable in the sense that the nature of his illness has caused normal verbal communication between them to be difficult - if not impossible - it doesn't make their parting of the ways any easier ... or any the less sad.

    Oh ... how I wish the stringent Immigration Rules could be relaxed in some way in order to cater for circumstances that would allow your three other nephews to visit their father ... it seems especially unfair that they can't.

    Hopefully ALL who've read your brother's story will take heed of the moral it contains ... and I thank God he has a deeply devoted sister like your goodself.

    Meanwhile, I'm delighted to see that one of our STAR members has attained her first *Silver Star in recognition of the sterling contribution she has made to this forum.

    Congratulations ... *it's THOROUGHLY deserved, Rosie!

    Thank you so much Michael, Rayna, Arthur and Mark for your kind words and thoughtfulness. I am hoping that when my nephews become older, it might be easier to organise a visa.

    I also feel privileged to have reached my first silver star, thank you for the reps!

    Unfortunately only the youngest of the three has a British Passport and he's only 11 years old ............

    Thanks Fred and Admin for the rep.

    I have driven the 80 mile round trip to visit my brother every week, since he arrived back here in UK in 2010. Family is so important to me and I value what very little left, especially my younger brother. He has been good to me in the past and despite living abroad for 25 years, our bond has always remained close.

    God bless him

    Your brother is very blessed to have you. I hope he's able to recognise that it's his birthday so you can celebrate the special day with him, body and mind. God bless you both, and congrats on the silver star!

    Thank you so much dontpushme, my brother does know it's his birthday soon but he doesn't remember how old he is. Bizzarely, he does remember how old I am and that there is three and a half year age gap between us, but his brain does not compute .......

    Continue supporting your brother, as i'm sure it really means a lot to him.

    Rosie, it's hard to imagine how it started out 4 years ago and even harder to realise the outcome so far along that journey.

    Reading back it's easy to see what an inspiration you've been and remain.
    Personally I'd always expected a better outcome but knowing you a little over those 4 years who can say what lies ahead.

    It's really a credit to you for maintaining a loving family contact through thick and thin ......I'm 100% convinced it makes a difference in so many ways.

    Thank you so much Jake and Terpe for your very kind words

    My brother is very vulnerable and he only has me to support him. Blood is thicker than water and I will never desert him.

    Five years today since my much loved brother was taken ill and sustained brain damage.

    I'm currently working on visitors visa applications for his two eldest sons to visit him here in UK as they haven't seen their dad since 2010 when they were 12 and 14 respectively (now 17 and 19). If successful, they will be staying with me over the Christmas period and I will be taking them to see him regularly

    Iv only just caught up with this thread, and your Brother is blessed to have a sister such as you Rosie, if anyone deserves a decent break its you two, and if there is any justice in this world you will be succesful with the visa applications. When i read of your loyalty to your younger brother it makes me feel very humble when there are people like you around, if there was any small way that i could help, i would be only to happy to, and i say that with the greatest sincerity, good luck for the future to all of your family.

    I really hope that the visa's will come through Rosie.

    Surely a compassioned plea in supporting letter will not go unnoticed.

    Good luck Rosie
