    John thought about

    I am wondering if my sentences are correct. I am not sure if my sentences sound natural. Would you please correct my mistakes?

    John thought about his father who was still sleeping in bed. When he got up, John would ask him to borrow him some money to get him through until the end of the month.

    Re: John thought about


    John thought about his father, who was still sleeping in bed. When he got up, John would ask him to lend him some money to get him through until the end of the month.

    I'd omit 'in bed' or 'sleeping'. I'd change the part I have underlined to John would ask him if he could borrow some money.
