My brother is home

My brother, Weylin, has been on a mission for our church for about 6 months now.  In our church young men are encouraged to go on a two year mission when they are 18 years old.  About a month and a half ago he got sick.  He started feeling nauseous, dizzy, disoriented, and his head hurt.  These are the same symptoms my brother, Roark, got on his mission.  Roark was sick for about 6 months with doctors running every test they could think of before he was finally sent home a year into his mission.  We never found out exactly what was wrong with Roark, but he was sick for a couple of years before getting better.  When Weylin started showing the same symptoms that made Roark so sick on his mission we all got nervous, but we were still hoping that it might be ok.  Weylin has now been sick for about a month and a half with no sign of getting better.  Doctors have been running tests on him but haven’t been able to find anything.  Today he finally came home.  I know he is disappointed, and that makes me sad.  He loved his mission and did not want to come home so soon.  I am also worried because Roark was sick for years before finally getting better.  I am worried that Weylin is going to have to go through the same thing.  I know it is still possible that what Weylin has is different that what Roark had, but they are so similar.  Members of our family have tested positive for a couple of different genetic problems, and so I wonder if it has something to do with that.  Weylin is going to keep going to the doctor, hopefully we can get some answers as to why he is sick.
