No one told Sheldon because he was the baby, and Georgie says he didn't want to burden his little brother. There is a {{Beat}}, where Sheldon admits he can be oblivious and apologizes, having a JerkassRealization. Georgie forgives him because he realizes that Sheldon didn't know how hard his older brother worked to keep things together, because no one ''told'' him.
