(AP) A spokeswoman for the family of a 10-year-old Pennsylvania girl recovering from two double lung transplants says the girl is expected to be released from the hospital this week.


Tracy Simon says a final decision hasn't been made on exactly when Sarah Murnaghan (MUR'-nuh-han) will leave Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.


Janet Murnaghan said Sunday that her daughter had been taken off oxygen, although she still gets support from a machine that helps her breathe, and has started to walk with the aid of a walker.


Sarah's case spurred a national debate over the process of getting transplanted organs.


The Newtown Square girl with end-stage cystic fibrosis received the transplants in June after a federal judge intervened in her parents' lawsuit challenging national transplant rules.
