But doctors caring for Charlie at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London say it is not practical to provide life-support treatment to Charlie at the couple's home for days.
Mr Justice Francis began analysing the dispute at a hearing in the Family Division of the High Court on Tuesday. The hospital argued that neither allowing Gard to go home with the parents nor the parents' hospice plan were possible and that Gard should be kept at the hospital. Every day, parents with a seriously ill child in intensive care units, emergency rooms and other pediatric care facilities make heart-rending decisions to withdraw life-sustaining technology.
Previously, the hospital had promised that they "won't stand in the way", according to Grant Armstrong, the couple's lawyer, but now they were setting up "obstacles". May I pay tribute to these nurses'.
Hospices focus on supportive care in the final stages of illness, and are not usually set up to accommodate keeping an infant in Charlie's condition alive.

Charlie requires invasive ventilation to breathe and can not see, hear or swallow.
"It is in Charlie's best interests to be moved to a hospice and for him at that point to be moved to a palliative care regime only".
The details of when the transfer and removal of life support take place were discussed while journalists were removed from the court but earlier, Fiona Paterson, representing the hospital, said in open court that "it should be Friday".
But the hospital said a paediatric intensive care unit specialist would be required to care for the child at a hospice over a longer period.

British courts and the European Court of Human Rights sided with the hospital in a string of hearings since March.
Bambino Gesu hospital had offered to treat the 11-month-old while his parents were trying to persuade British courts to tell a London hospital to release the boy for treatment in the United States.
But the parents opposed that plan because it would be likely to give them even less time with their son. His parents just on Monday announced they were giving up their legal fight against the hospital and their own government to obtain treatment. "We can not know if Charlie would have responded to the experimental therapy".
In a statement, GSOH condemned Hierano for making this assumption after it was revealed that he had not visited the hospital to examine Charlie, not seen Charlie's contemporaneous medical records, viewed Charlie's brain imaging or read all of the second opinions about Charlie's condition.
