A surgeon said a 3-year-old South African girl who received a cloned skin transplant is likely to be discharged from the hospital next week.
Bedtime for 3-year-old Isabella Kruger now includes a bottle and a massage. This ritual has become possible again as the toddler recovers from surgery that transplanted cloned skin onto her body after 80 percent of it suffered burns in a backyard accident.
"Her body is building muscle, recovering, healing wounds, healing the grafts. We want her to be nice and strong," Mia said.
"There is a lot of loss of muscle bulk and strength, which is something she has to work on. It is almost like a baby that needs to gain tone and muscle," Mia said.
