Lord we lean on you and trust you

It's hard when life is going perfectly and everyone seems happy and healthy and then you are hit with a bombshell. That's what happened with my family. My dad went in to see the Dr for sudden chest pains and was told he would need a double bipass. He was very optimistic as this surgery is performed all of the time. The couple days after his surgery the Dr's were surprised at how well he was recovering and expected him to be out of ICU the next day. A week later he is still there. My dad's body started weakening and his organs started to fail. They had him on a breathing machine, he was almost non responsive and the Dr's couldn't figure out why because the surgery went great and his heart was healthy. 5 days later my mom figured out that the hospital staff had neglected to give my dad his thyroid medicine which we were told was the cause of his sudden health decline. His kidneys are now not functioing and he had to go on dialysis. His condition is still getting worse and his oxygen is extremely low  so they had to sedate him and place a breathing tube down his throat. He is now unresponsive. :(  We are trying to stay optimistic and trust in the Lord but it gets harder each day. 

I am asking for financial help for my family. We have never asked for help like this but none of us were prepared for the length of time my dad would be in the hospital. My brothers and sisters and I have all helped pay for expenses but now I am asking for help so my mom is still able to stay in a room across from the hospital, for my family that lives there to have the means to keep traveling to and from the hospital, for the travel costs for my brothers and my family  to be able to make the trip to be there for my dad if need be, and to help my mom with their personal bills so she isn't stressing about working and can be there for my dad. My parents have been married for 30 years and he is the most selfless man I have ever met. Please, If you can help we will be forever grateful. 
If nothing else, please add my dad to your prayers.
