I spent a week in the behaviorally health unit, so the Dr's could regulate my meds for anxiety. My ex got a temporary order of custody of the kids while I was in the hospital, has kept them from me for 3 weeks. He has now requested my medical records. We go to court this monday

You say that he requested your medical records - did he issue you discovery or just make an informal request?
