Katie Learns Of CPS Investigation - Becomes Depressed

Katie learned that CPS has opened another investigation. This means they could take and pick her up any minute at school or at home and place her back in custody and at M.D. Anderson.

Katie became very depressed and withdrawn beginning that afternoon. She spent most of the day on the couch curled up into a tight ball with a crying look on her face. She didn't watch TV, or do anything, and I couldn't get her up. She slept most of the daytime and into evening, something she normally never would do.

I have to admit it stressed me out too, I got an ulcer in one day, and had to go on Tagamet pills. Michele was also very stressed out and did not sleep at all just worrying about it and waiting for that dreaded knock on the door again. Jonathan, Katie's brother, was having nightmares that they took Katie again.

We are doing what we feel is best for Katie and Katie agrees with our decisions. Why does M.D. Anderson have to stick their nose in here and put us all through this living hell again. It is enough to give an older man like myself a heart attack or to make a pregnant woman lose a baby.
