Quinn, I am so sorry you are going through such a stressful time. This must be so hard for you but you are handling it so well. And yes I think it is good to get your brother to step up. Often one family member takes on the burdens of the whole family and as you say you are caught between two worlds. As Cassie pointed out so wisely, you should not neglect yourself in all this. This called self preservation.
What is hydrostatic testing? Cassie, you sound like you are in awesome shape.
I, on the other hand, feel like I am stuck in one place. I lose two gain three, gain one, lose two and so on.
