Angus toddler Blake McMillan is due to return to Ninewells after being rushed to hospital in Edinburgh.
The three-year-old, who has MECP2 Duplication Syndrome, was to be moved to the High Dependency Unit at Ninewells Hospital on Thursday, where he will continue to battle the rare condition.
The tot was taken to a specialist intensive care unit at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh under police escort over a week ago.
The Carnoustie boy was initially diagnosed with pneumonia and placed on a life support machine before being given drugs to paralyse him and keep his heart working.
Thousands of people are following Blake’s progress through the Blake McMillan Trust Facebook page, which was set up to raise cash for those with the syndrome.
His mum Jenny posted: “I am delighted to let you know that Blake will be taken back through to HDU at ninewells today.”
