And as stated in the previous thread Remember not to speculate or make negative comments about the family or discussions will be stopped

Thank you for the new thread Tamaras.

Hope Alfie is doing ok, whatever is happening with him tonight.

I haven’t followed the story too closely apart from skim reading these threads. I was chatting to my parents about it tonight (in their 70’s, lost my Dsis at 5mths old) and they said why won’t AH let the parents take him home or wherever they want, if the inevitable was going to happen, i explained i thought that moving him may cause him pain/distress and certainly not improve his situation. But it led me to wonder why they can’t just take him home and cuddle him to the end, surely it would end the circus created by the army and perhaps provide some peace to them all? I know it will have been discussed loads on these threads so please excuse me if i am going over the same thing. Genuine question.

I think you had already answered your own question.
Moving him might cause him more distress

@GoofyIsACow I think ( and hope ) that they will be working towards taking him home now.

I think before there was a lot of concern about the parents trying to take him to Italy if they were allowed to bring him home and also concern around the death threats to members of staff. It seems like Toms statement and Facebook status is saying if everyone calms down then he could come home.

Still provocative statuses being posted by his brother though. I wish they'd all just learn about spouting off on social media so people who haven't got a clue about anything can wind them all further into a frenzy. It's not helping anyone

I agree, the brother's posts are entirely undermining Tom's statement.

Had posted this at the end of the old thread. Just reposting here as I found the comments interesting. https://www.facebook.com/itvnews/videos/10155817654572672/

@BuntyII It's refreshing to see some sensible Facebook comments!

@Alpineflowers I think that came across wrong, I'm not wishing for him to be distressed at-all, I am fully for whatever is in his best interests but if the hospital agree it is ok for him to be at home then I think it would be nice for his parents to spend their final hours/days with Alfie at home away from ridiculous protests and away from social media etc

BuntyII Fri 27-Apr-18 00:13:00

@StayingAtTamaras I know I was pleasantly surprised to see a few fairly balanced comments on the post.

WhatCanIDoNowPlease Fri 27-Apr-18 00:19:59

It looks like they have turned commenting off in the 'official' fb group so hopefully it will calm down.

No it wasn't a criticism of you, I understand what you mean but I think the doctors have already suggested that moving him might cause him distress and possibly pain.
It's a very sad situation all around

Leontine Fri 27-Apr-18 00:32:39

How old is his brother? He seems very young.

Thorsday Fri 27-Apr-18 01:08:16

I'm getting so frustrated at the AA with their tinfoil hats calling the doctors and nurses evil.

Battleax Fri 27-Apr-18 01:11:21

I’ve only been vaguely following. Placemarking while I trey to catch up.

Want2bSupermum Fri 27-Apr-18 02:07:28

My thoughts are with this little boy going into another day which might be his last. His parents, devastated at what is not to be, hopefully coming to terms with reality.

MynameisJune Fri 27-Apr-18 06:04:51

I saw a post that suggested he was going to speak through a family member from now on. I think we all know which family member that might be.

Ivegotfamilyandidrinkcupsoftea Fri 27-Apr-18 06:09:52

I hope they get to take Alfie home and he is able to pass peacefully. flowers

WellThisIsShit Fri 27-Apr-18 06:19:23

My heart goes out to all of them, the poor parents and their little boy.

My heart also goes out to all the families who are in these terrible situations whose cases haven’t been made so public.

I hope the situation continues to calm - I have private fears and thoughts which apparently are censored from typing here - so I shall leave it at that.
