I am new to this site so, I'm not sure really what to say, but I am asking more for help then to write a story.
I'm the aunt of 2 nieces and 2 nephews. About 2 years ago, my brother and his ridiculous girlfriend moved in. Everything so far had been good, until about a good 4 months ago. For some awkward and weird reason, my nephew had been waking up screaming and yelling. He has asthma, and can barely talk. Although he is 3 and can talk with the movement of his hands. At first we didn't think much of it, because well he's just a baby really. But as the nights continued things got worse and worse. He would be waking up more recently. With more enthusiasm then the last. (By the way, he also sleeps in the room with his older sister 6 and younger sister 2.) They have not all been affected by this. I myself didn't start to worry about until, most frequently a few days ago.
It had been a normal day. I went to practice, and came home and everyone was asleep. So I started on this project for school. All of sudden about 5:21pm my nephew is screaming his head off, (this is after about a 2 weeks of nothing), I immediately with my brother, ran in to find him sitting up, but instead of him just screaming, he had marks on him, and I'm not talking about the playful little taps you get from falling; no. Worse he had a mark around his neck as if someone was choking him, he had scratches on his chest and back, and as if someone had punched him in his eye.
At first it didn't mean anything, until the harm of nephew. I'm more worried then anything. As a child I used to experience these sorts of things. And only once did I experience getting scratched, but not the way he was. He's only 3 as you can see. And I'm concerned about his well-being more than anything. I am Catholic and do believe in these things. But in this case I have no idea what to do! I have been trying on every site and this looks like it gives good feedback! Please help in way you can! I'm only an aunt that would go back and forth my nephew!
Thank you for your help!
