Sarah Murnaghan doing well while recovering at home
NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. - September 15, 2013 (WPVI) -- It has been three months since Delaware County native Sarah Murnaghan underwent a successful double lung transplant at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
Her mother said she is doing 'fantastic' but is struggling with compression fractures up and down her spine.
The fractures are a side effect of the drugs Sarah is taking to stop her body from rejecting her new set of lungs.
The 11-year-old Newtown Square girl received two transplants while fighting end-stage cystic fibrosis.
She is undergoing physical therapy as she continues her recovery at home.
