10-Year-Old Lung Transplant Recipient Is Recovering

PHILADELPHIA (August 1, 2013)—Sarah Murnaghan, the 10-year-old Pennsylvania girl who’s recovering from two double lung transplants, will soon move out of intensive care, her mother says.

Janet Murnaghan wrote on her Facebook page that her daughter Sarah was being moved to a progressive care unit at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

The Newtown Square girl received the transplants after a federal judge intervened in her parents' lawsuit challenging national transplant rules.

Sarah's first set of adult lungs failed after a transplant June 12 and a second set was transplanted three days later.

Janet Murnaghan did not return a call Thursday, and the family has not given the hospital permission to comment.
