Alfie Evans’ parents are headed back to court today in their desperate attempt to save his life and stop a children’s hospital from yanking his life support over their objections. But, over the weekend, Evan’s parents faced off with Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in a different way.

According to weekend news reports, Alfie Evans’ mother was told to leave his bedside after the hospital informed Alfie’s parents that they would no longer be able to sleep in his hospital room overnight. Like any parent of a very sick child, Alfie’s parents want to be able to spend as much time with him as possible while he’s in the hospital — especially with a protracted legal battle that could result in yanking his life support and ending his life at any time.

The weekend news reports indicate that Alfie’s mother Kate James had been questioning a nurse about revised visiting restrictions that were sent out in a letter to parents. The letter put limits on Alfie’s parents and their ability to visit Alfie.

Here’s more from that news report:

The letter, from the Liverpool hospital’s chief nurse, said the only Alfie’s parents and two named visitors were now allowed to visit the Peadiatric Intensive Care Unit (PICO) at one time.

The Twitter post read: ‘Tonight Alfie’s mummy has been told to leave Alfie’s side and removed from the ward for asking the chief nurse is it acceptable for family members now being told they CANNOT see Alfie and does she care.. to which the chief nurse replied NO and told Kate to leave the ward.’

The letter also said that ‘due to the seriousness of the events’ last night, only Mr Evans and Alfie’s mother Kate James, along with two other named family members’, were allowed to visit the toddler.

Broadcasting from his son’s bedside tonight, Alfie’s father Tom Evans revealed he and the toddler’s mother Kate James had been banned from sleeping in the same unit as their son.

The letter also stated that family members and friends of the parents were last night ‘shouting over your son Alfie in his cubicle, abusive, filming other patients and visitors, filming staff, and behaving in a manner which was felt to be threatening, intimidating and unsafe by other parents and by our staff’.

The letter also said that ‘due to the seriousness of the events’ last night, only Mr Evans and Alfie’s mother Kate James, along with two other named family members’, were allowed to visit the toddler.

Mr Evans said a jet was waiting at John Lennon airport and it is understood he plans to take his son to the Vatican-linked Bambino Gesu Paediatric Hospital in Rome for diagnosis and possible treatment after they received backing from Pope Francis.

The couple’s MEP Steven Woolfe said Alder Hey ‘is more concerned with saving face than saving a young child’s life’.

Alfie’s parents today thanked ‘thousands’ for their ‘historic show of support’ outside Alder Hey Children’s Hospital Trust in Liverpool and called on them to return.

But also accused doctors caring for their son of keeping him prisoner and treating ‘duty of care’ as ‘duty to kill’.

Mr James says he was threatened with arrest for assault if he tried to remove his son

As LifeNews has reported, the legal battle continues today.
