Now, his father Tom Evans is demanding to “take him home.”
Tom said: “For the third day now, there’s been not one single problem with him. Alfie doesn’t need intensive care any more. Alfie is lying on the bed with one litre of oxygen going into his lungs and the rest is him.”
“Some people say it’s a miracle, it’s not a miracle, it’s a misdiagnosis.”
He continued, saying that Alfie had “been off a ventilator for three days now” and that there had been “no deterioration” in his condition.
“He hasn’t woke up, he’s still a little bit weak but what we ask for is to go home to sustain his life,” Alfie’s father said.
Evans ruled out further legal battles to attempt to take Alfie to Italy to take him to a pediatric hospital that has offered to provide appropriate medical care and treatment for him. Alfie’s parents had hoped to take the little boy to the hospital in order to potentially get treatment that could help his rare degenerative neurological condition but courts have repeatedly denied that.
