"I would like to ask him what he was thinking," she said. 

The children were treated and released from a local hospital. But Jones was not released until Wednesday. 

"That first night after it, they didn't sleep. They all had nightmares and didn't sleep that good. They seem to be doing better now that I'm at home."
