. But after months in hospital James was diagnosed with autoimmune encephalitis, a rare neurological condition causing inflammation of the brain. James has now returned home for the first time in eight months after he was rushed to hospital and treated for a rare autoimmune disease. James, from Ellesmere Port, became ill with high temperatures and lethargy in December 2021 but it wasn't until the following month when he was admitted to hospital. He’s since had a myriad of different treatments, including steroids, therapeutic plasma exchange, and he’s been put on a ketogenic (keto) diet to try to control his seizures. Georgia stayed at Alder Hey's Ronald McDonald House while James remained in the hospital. She said: "When I arrived at the House back in January, I had nothing with me other than the clothes I’d thrown on that morning.

"Feeling anxious and lonely, not only was I given somewhere to rest and sleep, but I was also given food and drink, having eaten and drank nothing all day. I will never forget that first greeting and the way in which the staff wrapped their arms around me." The mum-of-two added James has 'got better and stronger'. She said: "As I approach the end of my stay at the Ronald McDonald House, it’s mixed emotions. "I feel like I’m leaving my second family but I’m also excited and can’t wait to spend the rest of the summer with both my boys at home together. I’m so grateful to everyone who’s helped us to get here and can’t thank them enough.” Lynne Wright, house manager at Ronald McDonald House Alder Hey, said: “It’s been our absolute pleasure to accommodate Georgia since James’s hospital admission in January, but we’re so pleased for her and her boys that they get to go home now. As a charity, we are proud to be able to help ease the financial and emotional burden of having a sick child in hospital. "We believe that when a child is sick, the entire family needs comfort and support. We work closely with our NHS hospital partners to support family-centred care by giving families a place to stay, moments away from their child’s ward.” Get the latest headlines here READ NEXT: Weapons haul and 'banned dog' seized after police raid cricket club being 'used to store stolen vehicles' The most sought-after home in Greater Manchester that everyone has their eyes on Lost Greater Manchester nightclub captured in unearthed noughties photos Serial abuser threatened to kill partner and held a knife to her throat after she questioned texts found on his phone Disruption on ALL trains through Stockport will last until end of the day
