Daughter's wish

My daddy is the most amazing father in the world. Everyone always called him Super Dave, because he could do anything and everything.  I never saw my dad yell or fight with anyone.  He is the kindest, most loving man that I've ever known.  He loves my mom more than I've ever seen any man love a woman.   He's truly an inspiration.  10 years ago my family was changed forever when we received a call that my daddy had fallen 30 feet off of a barn roof while working.  He was taken directly to the Level 1 Trauma Center 30 miles away, hoping for the small chance of survival he was given.  He had received 2 sub-dural hematomas in the front of his brain, and we didn't know what that meant for him, but we all knew that my dad was a strong man - He was Super Dave, after all.  I saw him shoot a nail in his hand once with a nailgun, and then remove it with a hammer, so he could finish the job.  Nothing a little black electrical tape couldn't fix.  

My dad started work at 5am everyday, bringing nothing but satisifaction to all his customers at the construction company he owned.  My mom did the book-keeping, and took care of my younger sister, Kendall.  I was 14 when Kendall was born, and immediately, she was daddy's girl!  

This injury had my dad in the hospital and rehab center for 6 months before coming home.  We praised God to have him home, but he was unable to work like before.  My mom went back to work, but my dad's loss of income has been impossible to recover and his medical bills have continued to increase.  

I know that God has a plan for everyone, but I can't figure out what God's Will is here.  My dad would do anything for his church and loved the Lord.  He'd help anyone that asked and even those who wouldn't ask. 

Now, I'm asking for your help.  My dad has been placed in Hospice Care after 2 years at Manor Care Nursing Home.  He's not in pain, and talks silly most days because of his brain injury.  He often thinks he's working on a roof, or mowing the lawn.  He receives good care at the nursing home.  He's unable to walk, and isn't eating much anymore.   He speeds a lot of the day sleeping.  Even in Hospice care, Medicare and Medicaid have calculated that he and my mom owe $1,300 a month for continued care, going back to January 1, 2015.  Without payment, they plan to deliver my dad back home.  

My mom has exhausted all her options, so I'm asking for your help and your prayers.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
