please, please can someone help me. I am a mom of an 11yr girl & 9yr boy. My son is diagnosed with sensory disorder & is in the process of assesment for autistic spectrum disorder. I have been divorced from their dad for over 5yrs now. He see's the children when he feels like it with no regular routine. When unemployed he was paying £10 fortnight, then he started work in april & csa still chasing him. I had a op on my back last oct 2011 & a lumbar epidural that left me with no feeling/movement in left leg. I have been with my partner 3yrs & between him & my parents they had my children. I had a relapse about 5wks ago & i'm still in hosp now. My ex husband has had the kids 3 times for tea & the rest of the time they with my parents. I been texting him for help bt keeps saying he working or got hosp appointments & has no room to have them over night (even though he has before). i ended up having an argument with him & his partner on textes & now he's threatening to get full custody of my children because he says i can't look after then. he has parent & a big family & non of them bother with my children. my daughter starting to realise her dad not always there & says she doesn't want to livewith him & my son with his problems says whatever he thinks me or his dad want to hear. I have never stopped him seeing them, infact it all i've been trying to do since we split. My partner says not to worry but i can't help it. i don't want to loose mychildren & i know they don't want to live with him. what should i do & can he do this while i'm in hospital?
