The father of Alfie Evans says his son has now survived for 3 days without ventilation.
The 23 month old's life support was withdrawn on Monday.
Tom Evans wants his son to be allowed home. He told reporters he's meeting officials at Liverpool's Alder Hey hospital later to discuss that possibility:
As I sit by Alfie's bedside, every second of every day, it encourages me more and more that Alfie will live.
Alfie lives comfortably, happily, without ventilation. That must be enough for you now to consider that Alfie may prove you wrong.
Lawyers representing Alder Hey Hospital bosses said the fact that he had continued to breathe unaided might have surprised members of the public but had not surprised specialists.
Barrister Michael Mylonas QC, who led Alder Hey's legal team, said it had never been suggested that Alfie would die as soon as life-support treatment stopped.
Several hundred well-wishers lined the street outside Everton FC's stadium to say farewell to 23-month old Alfie Evans.
A private funeral for 23-month-old Alfie Evans will be held next week, it has been announced.
An MEP is launching a campaign for "Alfie's Law" to give parents of terminally-ill children more say in end-of-life hospital care.
