Karen remains convinced there's more to foster son Mikey's injuries than meets the eye and wants to have him medically assessed

Karen Hollins confides in surgery colleague Dr Emma Reid that she and husband Rob are having some problems with new foster son, Mikey Taylor-Wood. The six-year-old is endlessly active and somewhat accident prone.

While this could all just be the behaviour of a regular six-year-old boy, Emma suggests there could be something else involved like ADHD or dyspraxia.

Wondering if there's something wrong with Mikey, which might explain the previous injuries that led the Family Court to remove him from the care of his parents Beth and Jadie Taylor-Wood, Karen wants to have Mikey medically assessed. Unfortunately, this could take up to six months! Can Karen and Rob cope with the situation for now?
