Alfie Evans: father wants boy to go home following Rome rejection

Mr Evans and Kate James made applications to the Court of Appeal after a High Court judge ruled they could take their son home from the hospital, but not overseas.

The father of sick toddler Alfie Evans says there will be a meeting with doctors later to discuss taking his son home.

Mr Evans and Ms James would, he said, work with doctors to ensure that Alfie, who is 23 months old, had "the dignity and comfort he needs".

As Breitbart London reported, more than 100 supporters of the toddler and his parents gathered outside Alder Hey Children's Hospital Wednesday night, continuing their two-week vigil.

An Alder Hey clinician told a previous court hearing that it was now impossible to move Alfie home for palliative care treatment because of the breakdown in the relationship between doctors and the family, and the hostility of some of the boy's supporters.

THE world is eagerly awaiting a name reveal for the new royal baby as tongues continue to wag over what it will be. Adoring fans said that the young princess was "legit the cutest thing ever" and that she could be the next Diana.

The parents of Alfie Evans have asked to be left alone after their final court appeals failed.

His father Tom (21) also appealed to the family's many supporters to step aside and allow them to "form a relationship" with Alder Hey Children's Hospital and go on to "build a bridge and walk across it".

A doctor treating Alfie told reporters off the record his parents can't take Alfie home to die unless there is a "sea change" in their attitude.

'Alfie doesn't need intensive care any more. We understand the last few months have been hard for them.

As the relationship between the hospital and Alfie's family has clearly broken down, their request to take Alfie to another hospital seems unarguable. The parents' lawyers went to court Wednesday to try to overturn that decision.

Tom and Kate, both in their 20s and from Liverpool, believe their son has a chance of recovering from his degenerative brain condition at Bambino Gesù Hospital in Rome.

Protesters also hit the streets in the United Kingdom - as well as in Italy and Poland amid the bitter over the medical care of the 23 month-old tot being cared for at Alder Hey Children's Hospital.

"That must be enough for you now to consider that Alfie may prove you wrong".

Professor Dominic Wilkinson, a consultant neonatologist at the John Radcliffe Hospital and director of medical ethics at the University of Oxford, said the fact Alfie can breathe unaided is not a sign that he has been misdiagnosed.

Polish President Andrzej Duda tweeted Wednesday that "Alfie Evans must be saved!"

Alfie's case has drawn global attention, with officials in largely Catholic Poland and Italy implicitly criticizing Britain's courts and state-run National Health Service. Alfie was granted Italian citizenship Monday after Pope Francis intervened on his behalf, so that he could be transferred to a hospital in Rome.
