Anita called. She explained the Ross children were with their dad this past weekend. Tonight Michelle was complaining of discomfort in her vaginal area. Anita examined her and found Michelle's vaginal area red and irritated looking. There was also a small amount of blood in the area - just inside her vagina. Anita felt Michelle should receive a medical examination.

I agree and suggested she contact the family doctor she uses for the children and arrange to meet at st. Paul's. We can then pick her and the girls up or meet them at st. Paul's. I advised her to also have Kathy examined.

2030 No word from Anita so I called. I ended up contacting her at st. Paul's. Her doctor asked Anita to bring the girls to st. Paul's and if it wasn't necessary he wouldn't do a full examination, just take urine samples. Tomorrow he would enlist the help of a specialist and conduct a full examination.

So as it turned out at st. Paul's that was all that was necessary tonight. A full exam and interview can be done tomorrow as there was no severe trauma. I agree to have our morning staff contact Anita Gross first thing in the morning to let her know of the situation.

2240 Anita Gross called. She had learned something about tonight's events and wanted more information.

I provided an account from my contact Anita Klassen. So now Anita Gross will call her in the morning to arrange tomorrow's interview and begin the investigation.
