Alfie Evans & # 39; s parents will submit an appeal on Wednesday preventing the terminally ill child from being taken to Rome for care.
Tom Evans, 21, and Kate James, 20, parents of the 23-month-old child (19659003) A judge called Tuesday's decision "the last chapter in the case of this extraordinary little boy," The Guardian reported. The judge ruled that the toddler, who had been discharged from the Lebenshilfe on Monday, is too ill to travel to Rome for treatment in the Vatican City.
The toddler's parents said that Alfie himself breathed after being taken off the life coaching, but the judge said it was in the best interest of the parents to "investigate the possibilities of removing him from the life." However, Evans said Tuesday night that the appeals court contacted him regarding the case.
"The appeals court has reached us and said that they will proceed Back three judges to hear the case," Evans said. "In fact, he could be in Italy right now, we all know that the military air force is ready to take him, and a team of doctors is there.

Evans said that there was also a German (19659003) Evans and James want to bring Alfie to the Bambino Gesu Pediatric Hospital of the Vatican.
Alfie Evans was released from her livelihood after a series of court rulings supporting physicians claiming further treatment were futile, and the boy would most likely not get better. The baby was following a seizure in December 2016 at Alder Hey Hospital in Liverpool. Alfie is in a "semi-vegetative state" as a result of a degenerative neurological disorder that doctors were unable to detect.
The months-long legal dispute between Alfie's parents and his doctors has prompted interventions by Pope Francis and the Italian authorities, who have supported the family's desire to have their son cared for at the Vatican hospital.
On Monday, the Italian Foreign Ministry announced that it would grant Alfie Italian citizenship to facilitate his arrival and transportation. The Daily Star reported that a helicopter in the hospital was ready to take Alfie to Italy if it was allowed.
Pope Francis met with Alfie's father last week and appealed to the boy to stay alive by saying that only God can decide who dies

Under British law, it is common for courts to intervene when parents and doctors disagree about treating a child. In such cases, the rights of the child take precedence over the right of parents to decide what is best for their offspring.
The emotional case recalls the brief life of another British child, Charlie Gard, who died of a rare hereditary disease in July 2017 following a bitter trial in which his parents were first treated in the US and then in Italy.
