ARCHIE Battersbee’s mum has said that she did everything she could in the fight for her son after being told his life support will end on Saturday.

His desperate parents wanted him to be able to spend his last momentsin peacewithout nurses and doctors.

Hollie and Paul went to the Court of Appeal in a bid to challenge the High Court ruling, but it was shot down last night.

Agonised mum Hollie said: “Ich weiß, dass ich alles getan habe, was ich konnte. Alles. I know I’ve done a very good job being Archie’s mum.

Based on my own childhood I was determined to be as good as a mother as I can possibly be and I feel like I have done that to the very best of my ability. It’s one of the reasons I am here.

Sie sagte the Daily Mail of her frustrations with the legal case: “All I have ever asked is to get him to six months – where is the harm in that for them?

They have spent a fortune on legal fees fighting me in court – money they could have spent on Archie’s care and others’.

At its heart this has been a case about a mother’s love, but also their rights. At what point did Archie’s dad and I lose our parental rights in terms of deciding what we want for our child?”

That question is one of the reasons why Hollie disagrees with so much that the doctors have told her, with Archie’s condition believed to be too unstable to sustain a transfer.

The tragic ordeal has been incredibly stressful, and with the support of the charity Christian Concern, they’ve frequently stayed up until the small hours to meet frantic court deadlines.

And Hollie has said that althoughthe pressure has been immenseshe can’tbreak downwhile fighting for her son.

Die Mutter fügte hinzu: “Time after time we have been told at the last minute that we have until 9am the following day to sort our submissions. It has been very difficult.

All the way through I haven’t had a chance to process everything that has happened.

Maybe that’s why I have never felt surprised by the outcomes. Upset of course but not surprised, because it felt like the odds were stacked against us from the start.

Most of the time it felt less like a hearing than a trial, like I was on trial.

Hollie confesses that she does get some sleep but often wakes up every 40 minutes to check Archie’s machines.

All I have known is that I can’t let my guard down and break down emotionally because the second I do that I won’t have the strength to fight for my little boy.

Hollie Dance, 46

Archie was found with a ligature over his head after a social media dare at home in Southend, Essex, im April 7 dieses Jahr.

His mum believes he was taking part in an incredibly dangerous online “[object Window]” challenge – also known as the “würgend” challenge.

Der Junge suffered brain damage in thefreak accident and has been unresponsive ever since.

Hollie has also had to deal with cruel social media trolls, who have relentlessly targeted her, accusing her of everything from being a liar to an unfit mother.

Sie sagte der Veröffentlichung: “Others have published my address, which jeopardises my son and daughter’s safety.

I try not to engage with it because for every one troll there are a thousand wonderful people out there and these nasty-minded souls are not important but it’s hard.

Anyone seen coming to court with me that been targeted too, sent vile messages on social media.

It was revealed on Wednesday that Hollie may give her son mouth-to-mouth if doctors withdraw oxygen when his machines are switched off.

Der Rat ist befugt, einen Fall vor das Amtsgericht zu bringen, wenn er entscheidet, dass es sich um eine gesetzlich vorgeschriebene Belästigung handelt

Das mum has vowed zu “continue to give him oxygenif doctors switch off the 12-year-old’s machine and isprepared to do anythingto keep him alive.

Some detractors acknowledge her deep love for her son but believe passionately that Hollie should place her trust in the experts.
