    That poor little baby. I hope the doctors can help her so she can live some semblance of a normal life. It's unbelievable that the circus actually tried to buy her from her parents...

    That's one of the most amazing / bizzare X-ray photos I've ever seen.

    She's so cute, but I will admit that one of the pictures of her I saw reminded me of Maggie Simpson in the Halloween episode when she sprouted tentacles... I would post a picture but I don't want to be accused of being heartless.

    As opposed to her dying successfully? Or surviving unsuccessfully? :confused:

    from the news it seems that she was welcomed by the villagers

    You know what he meant :rolleyes:

    (No use of hands/legs would be surviving unsuccessfully, since the goal is to give her 4 limbs, and they work like everyone else's.)

    thanks for that. :)

    Wow, 27 hours in surgery (that is a long damn time to be under general anesthetic)

    Glad to hear so far so good.

    Also, some people of the village were not happy about the operation, since they believe this girl is the reincarnation of the goddess Lakshimi. Here's a picture:

    Apparently, the parents believe so too, but they know their baby would not last long like this, so thankfully they decided to operate her anyway. Hopefully she will have a normal life after the operation.
