I hope that you are feeling much better.
My friend is going through a divorce and has once a week supervised visitation. She couldn't afford a professional so the court and both parties approved me The last visitation I had to leave for a bit due to being sick. I left the mom and two daughters by themselves for a bit and returned. Question is, could I get into trouble since I left them attended?
Response: Regrettably, yes, you could be in trouble for leaving. Next time, if you are sick, you need to tell the parties so that the visitation would be cancelled. There is a reason for supervised visitation.
By leaving the child alone with the parent in violation of a Court order, you potentially put the child in harm's way. You could be responsible if anything should happen to the child in that situation. So, you need to be very careful here with your obligation.
