Alfie Evans may go home in days as parents plead for calm

Alfie Evans: Father says family now want 'struggling' baby to be allowed home

After new developments with Alfie's condition this week, the child now sits in limbo with hospital staff refusing care and the boy's parents pleading with doctors to allow him to come home.

However, the Bishops' Conference of England and Wales has taken a different line, praising the medical staff at Alder Hey and distancing themselves from Rome's Bambino Gesù hospital, which has offered to take in Alfie for further treatment.

The boy's parents insisted that it is in their son's best interest to travel to Rome, where Alfie was granted Italian citizenship, to seek additional treatment. "We respect British law but we also appreciate Italy's efforts to fulfill the family's wishes", Nauert tweeted.

After the Evans family lost their last legal challenge, the hospital removed ventilation, but Alfie has survived longer than had been predicted, and he has been given oxygen, nutrition, and hydration.

Numerous court battles were waged over his case as it was made a decision to have the terminally ill boy's life support turned off.

He accused doctors of misdiagnosing his son and also vowed to return to court if the meeting did not go well.

"As an organization, we have endured attacks upon our motivation, our professionalism and our ethics".

"The Church has always been the first and only voice to speak out for truth and defend the vulnerable", McGuire said in a statement. "Having to carry on our usual day to day work in a hospital that has required a significant police presence just to keep our patients, staff and visitors safe is completely unacceptable". "We're not like them".

"I'd just like to clear up that this is in fact NOT TRUE".

He thanked his supporters but asked them to stop demonstrating at the hospital.

"We would now ask you to return back to your everyday lives and allow myself, Kate and Alder Hey to form a relationship, build a bridge and walk across it".

On Thursday, Tom Evans thanked the Alder Hey staff "for their dignity and professionalism during what must be an incredibly hard time for them too".

"In Alfie's interests we will work with his treating team on a plan that provides our boy with the dignity and comfort he needs".

Tom Evans, 21, appealed for privacy "for everyone concerned", saying he would no longer make statements or give interviews about his son's case. Follow this gallery to view the latest pictures from Alfie Evans' case.

"It's not even withdrawing help anymore, they're leaving him to die, they're causing suffering".

"We got rejected yesterday to go to Italy, unfortunately", Evans said, according to the BBC.

After an appeals court upheld a ruling on Wednesday preventing British parents Tom Evans and Katie James from taking their terminally ill, 23-month-old son, Alfie Evans, to Rome for more treatment, the family plans to speak with doctors Thursday in a last attempt to bring him home. Alfie doesn't need intensive care any more.
