• Mom: Pa. girl, lung transplant patient, recovering

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) (AP)ong> - The mother of a 10-year-old girl whose fight to obtain a lung transplant resulted in a court ruling in her favor said her daughter's out of surgery for a tracheostomy and is resting comfortably.

    Sarah Murnaghan's mother, Janet, wrote on Facebook Friday that she was relieved the procedure was over and it was a joy to see her daughter's face sans tubes and tape.

    Murnaghan said the procedure created an opening into Sarah's windpipe that she can breathe through.

    Officials at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, where Sarah is being treated, have declined to comment on her case.

    The Newtown Square girl, who has end-stage cystic fibrosis, received a pair of adult-lung transplant after a federal judge ruled in favor of her parents' lawsuit challenging national rules regarding organ donations.
