Yateley's Freddie sits up after previously struggling with paralysis

Published at 7:02pm 21st February 2017.

It has been a huge day for little Freddie Hunt from Yateley.

After hearing earlier this week that he had moved out of intensive care following a major brain operation - he was suffering some paralysis down his left side.

But today we are told he has managed to sit up and even play.

The toddler is in America for treatment on a brain tumour.

He got there after a huge fundraising effort by his family, including money Eagle Radio listeners helped raise on Freddie's Friday.

Mum Abby says it has exhausted him.

Just days ago he left intensive care and was struggling to walk from paralysis.

Abby posted on the Together for Freddie Facebook group today: "Good day for Freddie today - he managed to sit up and even a little play, so now he's exhausted but me and David are so proud of him.

"Our amazing boy."

It did however mean he was to tired for another round of dog therapy...

Abby wrote: "Dog therapy arrived, but Freddie sparko."

This is where dogs visit the hospital to cheer up patients. 

The family need to raise more money so that Freddie's treatment can continue.

The operation to remove most of the tumour was just the beginning and it is hoped he will eventually be able to have potentially life-saving proton treatment.
