CPS Fails to Care for Katie, Needs IV fluids.

CPS is caring for Katie after the chemo treatment. CPS has Katie in a Houston foster home. CPS was given strict instructions by the doctors regarding Katie's care following chemo, after being released Sunday from the hospital. CPS allowed Katie to become very dehydrated Monday and she was very sick. Katie had to be taken to the Hospital for IV's on Monday. They pumped fluids into her for two hours. CPS told us she was "fine". Katie told us she was not all right, but very sick Monday and Tuesday. Such dehydration can lead to numerous problems including bladder problems and kidney failure. Katie remains in the foster home with 7 other kids and shares a room with 2 other kids. This is also a very dangerous situation. Katie's blood counts will drop after chemo and she will be highly susceptible to any infection. She needs to be isolated. The more exposure to people, the greater the risk of infection.
