First, my mother is doing better, though may have suffered a mini-stroke/TIA during the night. We are waiting for the CT scan results.
My hearing went as well as could be expected today. The demands have been reduced, and the girls will meet with an attorney that's been assigned to them. They have to undergo independent testing, but there was no push to move them into the school system. In terms of custody, that will be part of the discussions we will all have with the children's attorney of the next couple of weeks.
Thank you for all of the support, prayers and love I felt holding me throughout the proceedings.
Now, to get through surgery and the RSCC in the next couple of weeks :)
