(AP) A 10-year-old girl who got adult lungs after her parents sued to change national transplant rules is set for more surgery to repair her diaphragm.


Sarah Murnaghan (MUR'-nuh-han) is scheduled to have the latest procedure at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia at 10 a.m. Tuesday. That's according to a post on the Facebook page of her mother, Janet Murnaghan.


The family revealed Friday the girl had to receive a second set of lungs after the first failed within hours of the original June 12 transplant. Her mother says the second transplant was a success and the girl was able to take a few breaths on her own.


Her mother says Sarah had to be put back on a ventilator because of partial paralysis of her diaphragm, a complication from the surgery.
