(AP) The mother of a 10-year-old Pennsylvania girl recovering from two double lung transplants says the girl has been taken off oxygen and is doing well.


Janet Murnaghan (MUR'-nuh-han) tells The Associated Press on Sunday that her daughter Sarah was taken off oxygen but still gets support from a machine that helps her breathe.


Murnaghan says that in the last few days Sarah has started to walk around the hospital with the aid of a walker and has even gone outside briefly.


The Newtown Square girl with end-stage cystic fibrosis received the transplants at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia 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. A second set was transplanted three days later.
