i haven't written on here in a while, but i am really in need of prayer and guidance.
last friday night / saturday morning, my dad fell and hit his head. he fractured his skull, and has significant bleeding in his brain. he is expected to recover, but it is a long, difficult process for everyone involved - full of lots of ups and downs.
so, first, i ask for prayer for his recovery.
we're also worried that once he starts getting better, he will realize more things like how being out of work will negatively affect him, etc and stress out. he had been suffering from major anxiety issues prior to the fall, and we don't want that to come back.
also, i would like prayer that we can find out exactly what's wrong.
the doctors can't really study him or what caused the fall - they're just working on his healing. he fell similarly back in 2005, and if we don't get answers fast, this could be an even bigger problem in the future.
in addition to all this, my mom is suddenly hit with a million responsibilities that we normally rely on my dad to do. things like paying all our bills out of the right bank accounts to simple things like getting the lawn mowed all add up and throw a major extra wrench into it all.
i took off school all of last week to be with my mom and help her through all of this.
however, i had to return today only to be hit with more late assignments and work than i think i can handle.
i really would like to be with my mom - she needs me, and i feel ridiculous worrying about school right now.
i would like to withdrawal from school for the rest of the semester, however, as of today, i would still be responsible of paying 75% of the semester's fees if i withdraw now. there is also no full guarantee that i will be re-admitted to the school for the following semester.
so, i ask for prayer once more.
i need to be able to either find God's direction that withdrawing to be with my family is the right thing,
or, i need comfort that i am meant to finish the semester and the diligence to catch up and do so.
sorry this ended up being so long, and thank you so much for your prayer.
i would also appreciate any advice / thoughts / tips / etc you may have.
