Kimberly Fuller of Yukon, OK, was moved out of the intensive care unit of Children’s Hospital last Friday and upgraded from critical to serious condition.
She was removed from a respirator but continued to receive oxygen through a tube in her nose.
“It’s just her pure resiliency and will that got her out of the intensive care unit,” said hospital spokeswoman Sue Cardillo.
“She’s just a determined young lady. ” Kimberly has been on a waiting list for her second lung transplant since April 24, 1992.
In 1985, at the age of 9, she was the youngest person in the nation to undergo a heart lung transplant. She spent 18 months on the donor list before that operation, which was needed because of a rare degenerative disease that scars the lung tissue and impairs the immune system.
Now she needs a second lung transplant because of a degenerative process resulting from organ rejection.
