Offers of support for little Freddie after toddler suffers cruel jibes

Published at 10:13am 11th April 2017. (Updated at 10:30am 11th April 2017)

A Yateley mum has told of her frustration and heartache as her little boy struggles to recover from brain surgery. 

Little Freddie Hunt is still not well enough to fly home from Arizona, after he had an operation in January to remove part of a brain tumour.

The Hunt family were due to fly back at the end of last month - but the trip was cancelled.

Freddie has been suffering from diarrhoea and is very swollen from fluid retention. It is believed there is a problem with his thyroid. 

Posting yesterday on the Together For Freddie Facebook page, mum Abby said: "Feeling sad, can't wait to come home.

"We had to use a different pool to get Freddie his pool therapy today. People staring at him and at us because Freddie is bloated. I hear people whispering as we went past look at the size of that baby !!

"I just want to shout back, HE IS ILL ,but I don't have my usual fight in me. It's really got me today ."

Since them, messages of support have been posted - with people expressing their sympathy and support.

One person said: "Don't pay any attention to ignorance!! They haven't walked in your shoes!! Head and chin up!! Keep smiling and getting Freddie on his way !!! Hugs "

Another said: "Keep strong, you'll be home soon and surrounded by people who understand and care about what you're all going through 💙💙 xxx." 

Last month, Abby told us things "were tough."

She Freddie was unrecognisable.

He was discharged last month two weeks after an operation to remove most of a brain tumour.

He was readmitted to hospital when doctors wanted to test for a second tumour, but thankfully the results were clear.

Abby said last month: "He can't fly because his heart rate is really high, his blood pressure is really high. 

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

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