Sarah Murnaghan, girl who fought organ donation guidelines, breathing completely on her own

(FOXNEWS) Sarah Murnaghan, the young Pennsylvania girl who received new lungs after a long court battle with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is now breathing completely on her own.

Janet Murnaghan, Sarah’s mother, took to Facebook on Sunday to share the medical milestone with her followers.  She said that Sarah was admitted to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) on Friday, where doctors began the process of removing her breathing tube and closing up the tracheostomy – a surgically created opening through the neck into the trachea for the tube.

With the post, Janet Murnaghan included a picture of Sarah without her breathing tube.

“Everything has gone beautifully! We are still at CHOP, planning to go home tomorrow,” Murnaghan wrote on Facebook. “This is the best one year anniversary picture I could ever imagine sending to you all.”
