She ended up calling the cops on Shelia, and after the cops refused to take the baby from Shelia, had an argument with her about the baby.
This resulted in Karen giving Sheila an ultimatum, that her mother choose between the baby or Karen. Sheila pleaded with Karen but she was unable to change her daughters mind, though ultimately decided to keep the child.
Karen kept her word and left her mother's home in response. Her son is named Hyram, with the nickname of Hymie given by her mother Sheila. Sheila is initially resistant, but eventually decides that her home is not a proper place to raise Hymie because of her boyfriend's Jody kinky sex acts for which he previously attended Sex Addicts Anonymous.

A day later, she is excited to see Lip at her house and tries to talk with him but he tells her he has decided to choose Mandy over her, as Mandy had his best interests at heart and genuinely loved him, whereas Karen didn't seem to have the same kind of love and respect for him.
Lip moved to leave but she stops him and tries to protest his choice, though he only apologizes for leading her on and walks off. It is implied Karen does feel the same about him as Mandy, but because of her continued manipulative actions, it doesn't seem that she loves him the way Mandy does.
Karen is devastated at losing the one other person, besides her mother that she thought she could count on.

- Shameless 3.08 Sneak Peeks: Lip Visits Karen at Sheila’s
The rejection from her mother upsets her as well, so much that she lashes out at her mother who sits on a couch for days. Her previous rejection from Lip leaves her so upset that she unwisely calls Mandy, thanking her for applying to colleges for Lip so that Karen herself could leave with him, and also that all she has to do is trick Lip into one unprotected encounter, and she will have him back.
While this was unlikely to happen, Mandy becomes furious about Karen's threat, having already shown clear insecurity about her relationship with Lip because of Karen. Later, Sheila visits Karen in her room and tries to reconcile with her by apologizing for not properly being there for her while growing up. This nearly works as both share tears and connect again until Karen receives a text message supposedly from Lip asking to meet at the park.
It is later revealed that Mandy was the one who sent that text using Lip's phone. Karen, not knowing this, kindly brushes her mother off and goes to meet up with him. As she crosses an intersection a car passes by, nearly hitting her. She dodges and directs her middle finger at the car, only to turn around and be rammed by a second speeding car in a hit and run. She is rammed and flipped completely on top of the car, landing on the road unconscious it as it speeds away.
However, she survives and is treated in hospital. Lip visits twice with Debbie and then alone. When Sheila tells Lip on one of his visits that Karen was excited about Lip's text, he discovers that someone used his phone to text Karen.
Sheila explained the Karen lit up when she got the text and that it probably made her so excited that she didn't look both ways. However, Lip asked if he could look at the phone.
Lip sees the text on a blood covered phone and ponders. Afterwards, Jody tells Sheila that they need to watch her one at a time, and that she needs rest on an actual bed. Remembering what Lip said earlier about using things Karen likes to being her out of her coma, Jody starts giving her oral sex which results with Karen waking up. Jody claims to have discovered a cure for the coma as he explains to the doctors about what had happened.
