Please pray for my nephew who is 18 years old. He is very depressed for he thinks he is "retarded" because his father called him that many years ago when he visited him and met him for the first time. His parents divorced when he was 6 months old and his dad moved to Puerto Rico. My nephew, Miguel, is a slow learner and is in 9th grade yet is taking courses below that grade level. He is frustrated and wants to be like normal kids and be done with homeschooling. HIs mother is at fault for why he is so behind. I tried taking over his homeschooling this year, but he wants one on one and I have my daughter and niece to do as well. He does need one on one. He is very depressed and not eating. He has lost interest in hanging out with his friend. He doesn't have a good relationship with God, so he doesn't turn to Him. He needs to be tested for other learning disabilities problems. I know he has somethings else wrong from the short time I had him. Anyway, he is not eating and wants to die. Please pray for him. Oh, and yes, he is seeing a psychologist.
Also he is going to have some nose surgery because he can't breathe out of his nose. He is a mouth breather. He doesn't have the sense of smell, but he will never have that for he was born that way. The doctors will try to fix the other problem and see if he can breath out of his nose. They told my sister, his mother, that he could bleed to death. I am sure they have to tell this to everyone as a possibility, but we had friends who lost their grandchild this way, so we know it can happen. His surgery is scheduled on Christmas Eve during the daytime. Please pray it goes well.
Thanks and God Bless.
