Parents concede baby Charlie dying in hospice

Charlie will spend his final hours at the hospice before a ventilator that keeps him alive is turned off.

Charlie's parents, Connie Yates and Chris Gard, had been given a noon deadline by the judge to agree care plans with GOSH.

Mr Justice Francis ordered that if the dispute was not settled, 11-month-old Charlie would be moved to a hospice and life-support treatment would be withdrawn shortly after he arrives.

Great Ormond Street Hospital said it was not practical to provide life-support treatment for days at the couple's home.

Charlie Gard's parents are conceding that he will die in a hospice and not at home as they had previously wished.

"Charlie's parents have tirelessly advocated for what they sincerely believed was right for their son, and nobody could fault them for doing so", a spokeswoman for Great Ormond Street said. Nurses from the hospital nonetheless have volunteered to care for him in his final hours. However, in the face of the mobilization of many people, the petition that had been launched by the parents, but also as a result of the intervention of pope Francis and u. s. president Donald Trump in favor of the parents of the baby, the hospital had re-started the procedures for reviewing the file.

The judge ruled that the name of the hospice and details about the arrangements for Charlie's death should not be published.

"We will arrange for Charlie to be transferred to a specialist children's hospice, whose remarkable and compassionate staff will support his family at this impossible time", it added. She then left the courtroom in tears.

In the light of the last medical examinations and scans of Charlie, the parents have to take an extremely hard decision, and to surrender to the evidence of a harsh reality. Charlie is unable to move his arms or legs or breathe unaided.

Charlie started having seizures before Christmas and his clinicians concluded that he had suffered irreversible brain damage by early this year.

"For Charlie it is too late". "This is the most hard thing that we have been given to do" goal, "we have made a decision to let go of our child", said a tearful Connie Yates, the mother of the baby, before the High Court of London.
