Mother of 5 at last stretch

Hey there my name is Shelby Koch and my mother is Jennifer Johnson/Martin daughter of Sharon and Larry Stoneking and the late mike Martin. I’m the oldest of my 4 little sisters and little brother. I’ve worked 50-65 hours weeks the past few years to help take care of my mom and siblings struggling through and pushing forward everyday, a few years back doctors discovered my mom had a blood disorder that made made it clot to the point they had to surgically repair her arteries and veins. She is now in her second and last major 16 hour surgery and I am doing all I can to take care of her and my little brother through this. I recently got a new job so I could have time to go to school and still help her. As a last effort I moved her and my little brother into my apartment until she’s healthy and can finally get back to working and being the amazing, strong mother she is. I hate asking for help because I usually have the answers and resources but I have no options and decided this may be worth a shot. I really appreciate whoever has read this and thank you for your time.
