This morning the BBC are reporting Alfie's parents "will meet with doctors later to discuss taking him home".

The NHS and Alder Hey's hospital medical staff said that Evans' condition is irreversible and that he should be taken off life support.

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.

Protesters carried out marches in Washington, D.C., and Belfast on Thursday afternoon, demanding Alfie Evans be allowed to leave the hospital with his parents and be treated at the Vatican's Gesu Bambino Pediatric Hospital.

A march will take place in Monasterevin on Saturday to show support for the family of United Kingdom toddler Alfie Evans.

Tom's statement was a stark shift from earlier comments in which he accused Alder Hey doctors of hating him and his family and behaving aggressively toward them for refusing to accept the doctors' prognosis of Alfie.

Specialists say his brain has been "eroded" and asked for permission to withdraw his life support.

Evans said that if he was not allowed to take Alfie home, he would resume his fight in court. "They've chosen to leave Alfie like that for months and months".

But he later told reporters that in his son's interests he and Kate would now work together with his treatment team and praised Alder Hey staff for their "professionalism".

The case has sparked a months-long court battle between the toddler's parents and the hospital, with leaders from around Europe weighing in.

High Court Justice Anthony Hayden on Tuesday rejected the parents' latest appeal, and said his ruling represented "the final chapter in the life of this extraordinary little boy".

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.

A protest is planned for later today outside of Wrexham Law Courts on Bodhyfryd.

The Italian hospital acknowledges that they will not be able to find a cure, but proposed maintaining Alfie's life as doctors investigate his case. "Alfie, we pray for you and your recovery!"

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

Alder Hey hospital chairman David Henshaw and chief executive Louise Shepherd issued an open letter defending the staff from a "barrage" of abuse. In a bid to ease transferring the boy to Rome, Italy granted the boy citizenship on April 23, but the court upheld it's previous rulings.
