Jackson out of hospital and coming home tomorrow

AFTER a turbulent few days, Casino teenager Jackson Byrnes has checked out of hospital and will be on a flight home tomorrow morning.

Mum Rhonda Byrnes said everyone was ecstatic to be coming home so early.

She said Jackson checked out of the Prince of Wales Private Hospital about an hour ago and was resting a hotel room close to the airport.

On Wednesday, the 18 year old underwent a seven hour procedure to remove more than 90% of a life threatening brain tumour.

The operation was only possible thanks to an incredible campaign that raised more than $100,000 to cover the costs of the private hospital procedure.

Jackson, his family and girlfriend will be boarding the 10.10am flight from Sydney to Ballina tomorrow morning.

Once back home, Jackson will undergo chemo radiation and physiotherapy.

He was visited today by NRL star Matt King and West Tigers team members at the Prince of Wales hospital in Sydney.
