Family Problem...abuse mentioned

Hello VPers,

This isn't vagina related, but I don't know where else to turn. This could get long, so please bear with me as I ramble.

My little sister is in an unhealthy relationship with her boyfriend (with whom she has two children). He controls her totally, to the point that he screens her calls and won't let her pick up if its her family. We haven't really got to talk to her for a few weeks, and to  my nephew not at all. She's a virtual prisoner in her apartment. She's just had my neice six weeks ago and I've only been able to see her once since she was born, because he wouldn't let me into their apartment. She had to bring the kids outside to my car. When she enrolled in school after her son was born, he enrolled too, so he could be with her all the time. This backstory is vital because of what is happening now. Ever since the baby was born my sister has been terribly ill. Vomiting, high blood pressure, weakness, and the latest, uncontrollable seizures. She's been in and out of the hospital for weeks now, and she's back in there tonight...they can't get her seizures to stop (she's never had them before) and she's vomiting non-stop. They are doing MRIs and CAT scans tonight and in the morning, but they don't know the history between her and her boyfriend. So far as I know it hasn't gotten physical between them but they have had numerous fights before, and he yells at my nephew all the time and gets physical with him, (like jerking his arm to get him to stand up, or yelling in his face, or spanking him quite hard) My nephew is two and I just don't feel like he's being treated right, but since I've not been allowed to see him I don't know if things have gotten better or not in that respect. So, that being said, my sister is in the hospital tonight and she's seizing and really sick, and the first thought that came to my mind when I heard this is, "Could he be poisoning her?" I mentioned this to my mom and she doesn't seem to think this is the case, but I wasn't the only person to bring it up. My husband, older sister, and a mutual friend have all mentioned this as a possibility when I told them. Should I call the hospital and have them check her for poison? Even though I really detest this guy I don't want to falsely accuse him of something this serious! I'm just really worried and I don't know what to do. Should I wait until the morning to see if she's gotten better? I mean, right now the bf is acting all concerned and worried, but he is a master manipulator and I just plain don't trust him. I'm scared and at a loss. Suggestions, please? I could really use some advice about his treatment of my nephew as well. Should I call family services? I don't have much proof lately because I haven't seen my nephew in months, so...I just don't know. Would they take the kids away from my sister? What would happen to them? I'm so concerned. Anyway, thanks for listening.
