The parents of Alfie Evans hold a vigil for the terminally ill boy in the tension between supporters and medical staff.
Tom Evans and Kate James failed in an eleventh hour to convince judges that they should move the police to a foreign hospital 23 years old
The couple, both in their early 20s and from Liverpool, claim that the life-saving treatment should be continued for your child suffering from a rare neurological disorder.
Parents have now lost two combat rounds before the Supreme Court, the Court of Appeals, the Supreme Court and the European Court of Human Rights.
Mr. Evans talked to reporters at the Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool this morning
He said, "Yesterday we were turned down to go to Italy, we could go on with it, but that would be it the right thing, would there be more criticism?
"What we do Today we have a meeting with the doctors t Alder Hey and we are now starting to ask for home.
"Alfie does not need any more intensive care Alfie lies on the bed with a liter of oxygen in his lungs and the rest is him Some people say it's a miracle It's no wonder It's a misdiagnosis [1
Alfie's case has touched hearts all over the world, including Pope Francis.
Moved by the prayers and immense solidarity shown by little Alfie Evans, I once again appeal to his parents' suffering can be heard and their desire to seek new forms of treatment can be granted.

However, Alder Hej said his employees experienced "unprecedented personal abuse" after they found themselves at the center of a "social media storm".  Hospital workers had "personally and by phone and online" exposed to a flood of highly offensive and threatening languages and behaviors while there were reports of unauthorized members of the public attempting to enter the hospital.
"Our usual day-to-day work in a hospital, which requires a significant police presence just to keep our patients, staff and visitors safe, is totally unacceptable," said hospital chairman Sir David Henshaw and executive director Louise Shepherd an open letter.
Merseyside Police issued a warning that it monitors posts online and that any "malicious communication or threatening behavior" is investigated and could lead to action.
We've issued a statement tonight to make people aware that social media posts published in connection with Alder Hey and the Alfie Evans situation can be monitored and traded. Read the full explanation here: https://t.co/epopt5bhmY

End of the month, doctors stopped providing life-saving treatment after Alfie's parents lost two fights to the Supreme Court, the Court of Appeals, the Supreme Court, and the European Court of Justice
But the couple who wants to bring Alfie to a hospital in Rome yesterday challenged a "last chance".
The couple said their son refuted the doctors' expectations and continued to survive (19659002) However, three judges of the appeals court dismissed the appeal of a Supreme Court ruling on Tuesday that he should not be taken abroad.
Lawyers representing Alder Hey bosses told Alfies The condition was irreversible and there was no evidence that this had changed.
They said that he would have continued breathing without help, would have surprised the public, but surprised no specialists.
Michael Mylonas QC barrister, who led Alder Hey's legal team, said it had never been suggested that Alfie would die as soon as the life-sustaining treatment ceased.
Barrister Sophia Roper representing Alfie and instructions from (19659002) Lord Justice McFarlane, who headed the appeals court's judges panel, said Alfie's parents were trying to "take one last chance."
But he said that there was no prospect for the couple's challenge succeeding and Alfie was "in the middle" of a palliative care plan.
