Yateley's Freddie Hunt discharged after major brain surgery

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 4:48pm 26th February 2017. (Updated at 11:27am 27th February 2017)

Yateley toddler Freddie Hunt has been discharged following major brain surgery in America.

The operation was to remove most of a tumour.

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.

His family will be delighted that he has been discharged more than two weeks after going under the knife.

In a post on the Together for Freddie Facebook page, mum Abby said: "Freddie's vomiting is awful, but we've been discharged !! 

"Still a long way to go yet as he still can't walk , but we are back in tomorrow as he has to have regular tests and then he's starting re hab to get him walking again hopefully.

"Freddie has a long road to recovery yet in front. Just to be able to cuddle him is lovely . He is still exhausted and sleeping at moment xx."

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.
