The fate of the baby Alfie Evans

On Monday, the baby Alfie Evans was disconnected from the life support device

Parents of the sick kid Alfie Evans will challenge the decision of the High Court of London, which forbids them to take the child to Italy for further treatment.

Family lawyers told the BBC that the hearing was scheduled at the Court of Appeal of London on Wednesday.

23-month life support was turned off on Monday after the court ruled that the Alder Hey children's hospital in Liverpool could do so. Parents of the baby Tom Evans and Kate James want to transfer their son to a hospital in Rome.

On Tuesday, a judge of the High Court of London ruled that the family could not take the child abroad for further treatment, but he could take him home.

Judge Hayden said: "This is the final chapter in the case of this extraordinary boy."
During a hearing at the Manchester Civil Justice Center, he said that Alfie's best parents can hope to "choose" options for disconnecting from the life support system, either in the ward, in the hospice, or at home.
The case was returned to the court at the request of the Christian legal center, which represents the parents, to file an application for Alfi to be transferred to a hospital in Rome.

He rejected Evans' statement that his son began to feel "much better", since he breathed without help for 20 hours.

The boy's father said that the entire hospital in Rome offers Alfi palliative care.

The kid was in Alder Hey since December 2016 with a rare undiagnosed degenerative neurological disease.

The judge described Alfi as "a fighter, staunch, brave and warrior", adding: "In the last 24 hours he proved it again, which deserves such characteristics."

He asked his mother - Olga Hay "to think creatively, ambitiously, although this may be a miserable hope, about options for palliative care."

Hospital Alder Hey and parents need to discuss the next steps for Alfie.

The doctor, whose name is not called, said that he feared that in the "worst case" parents would try to take Alfie abroad.

The judge said that by itself continuation of the life of the baby is a "tree of light" and a "special opportunity" for his parents to spend time with him, and not to waste time on legal disputes.

The judge rejected allegations that Alfi's health had improved and he was able to breathe himself, and said: "The sad truth is that it is not. Practically without hesitation, I deny this. The brain can not repair itself, and practically nothing remains of the brain. "

He said that Alfie's brain was destroyed and that he was "completely damaged."

Mr Judge Hayden said that the hospital provided good care for a "world class" child.

In a statement released after the hearing, the Alder Hey Children's Hospital said that "its main priority remains to ensure that Alfie receives the care that he deserves to ensure his comfort, dignity and privacy.

This includes close cooperation with Kate and Tom, as they spend this precious time with him. "
Speaking outside the hospital, the boy's father said that he would like to review the case again at the Court of Appeal of London: "I do not give up because Alfie is breathing. He does not suffer, he fights. A nurse just came in and said that he looks very good. "

Parents had hoped that Alfie could be taken to the Bambino Gesu hospital in Rome, which has connections with the Vatican, where care and maintenance of life can continue.
