First of all you will be assiduously gathering, collating and filing all medical records with the EOBs and payment evidence. After you have satisfied yourself that the doctors are finding nothing substantial, hire a psychiatrist to review it all. Offer to sign releases with all the child's care providers to allow the providers to answer the psychiatrist's questions. Simultaneously start working with a very experienced family law practitioner with disability expertise to obtain the court order to require mother to submit to psychiatric examination.
Best wishes for a favorable outcome, and please remember to designate a best answer.

Ms. Sinclair delivered a most excellent answer. And really, in my experience of Texas family law courts (over the last 12 years), you don't really need to prove Munchausen by Proxy in order to justify a modification of the orders, to obtain primary conservatorship or iplace an injunction on the mother. It may not be necessarily Munchausen's, but could also indicate the mother's pathological use of the child through medical professionals to strike back at the father financially. There, you don't need to prove up a psychiatric disorder. But still, Attorney Sinclair's advice is extremely sound--bring that information to a psychiatrist for an evaluation. That evaluation would be well worth the money.
