John said: “It’s been a bit of a white knuckle ride, we’ve had a lot to deal with.
“But we’ve come out on the other side due to professionalism of Alder Hey Hospital in Liverpool, they’re the best children’s hospital in the country if not the world.”
He continued: “They’ve been really magnificent, they’ve really saved her life because she was dead for three minutes and they brought her back.
“It’s onwards and upwards from today.
“We thought at one stage we were going to lose her.
“But it’s all been good due to the professionalism of the doctors and the surgeons.
“Whoever works there is an amazing person and we’re so grateful to have them.”
Meanwhile, Tyson has been keeping his followers on Instagram updated on Athena’s condition.
He recently said on Instagram: “Update for everyone. Baby Athena is doing well and has had a stable day off ventilator.
