Yateley toddler Freddie Hunt readmitted to hospital

Yateley toddler Freddie Hunt readmitted to hospital

Published at 8:58am 21st March 2017. (Updated at 4:10pm 21st March 2017)

Yateley toddler Freddie Hunt has been readmitted to hospital in America, just days before he is due to return home.

The two-year-old is in the US for treatment on a brain tumour.

Last week it emerged that after an initial operation to remove most of the tumour, Freddie was not currently well enough to continue his treatment.

He is due to return to the UK by the end of March so he can recuperate, with the plan that he will return to America for proton therapy.

However, the timeline has been thrown into doubt, with mum Abby posting on the Together for Freddie Facebook group to say that he is back in hospital.

Abby wrote: "After a very tough couple of days Freddie has been re admitted into hospital xx."

She later updated with a new post saying: "I am waiting to see doctors this morning for test results, Freddie has fluid retention all over his body he is huge. Diarrhoea and sickness too.

"They have run some tests and X-rays yesterday of his heart and lungs and kidneys just pray it's none of those I really do.

"It could be a endocrine problem. Will find out hopefully this morning."

Messages of support have been flooding in since the message was posted.

Since going in for surgery, Freddie has gone from having up to 80 seizures every day to having none.

However, he has suffered some paralysis and has lost the sight in one eye - it is not clear if either of these effects are permanent.

Eagle Radio listeners helped get Freddie to America for treatment as part of Freddie's Friday.

But the family's troubles continue, with more money needed to complete his treatment.
