- Filed for emergency temp custody Yesterday (Friday)(Already had 50/50 legal, placement with Mother. I got every weekend and a couple days during week - 3 1/2 years with no prior issues) Looking for full Temp placement with me until she is better.
- Court yesterday as ex-wife still in ICU.

- Judge gave kids to me but I have to take them to her moms Monday.
- He assigned a for the boys and set another court date for Wednesday.
- I know that a law guardian represents the best interest of the kids, but what are they doing until Wednesday to sort this mess out? (interview me? ex? School?)

Is mom (icu) uncouscious or is she just very sick. Can she talk? Write? Barley could read her signature. Kids talked to her on the phone Thursday (havn't seen her yet) and said that she could hardly talk and was using the wrong words ALOT when she did speak.

Update 3: omarchavezmcse - I told the boys that I would like them to stay with me when mom is sick and then go back like before when she is better but Mom and Grandma want them to stay with Grandma. I told them that they are going to be asked some questions as as long as they don't lie, I wont be mad at all with anything... show more omarchavezmcse - I told the boys that I would like them to stay with me when mom is sick and then go back like before when she is better but Mom and Grandma want them to stay with Grandma.
