Rusul Recovers from Amputation

We first told you about her in July, little Rusul Jalal, whose right foot was disfigured by a missile attack in front of her home in Iraq. Doctor's at Greenville Shriners Hospital amputated her foot earlier this summer. But in 2 weeks, she'll be able to walk again, with a new prosthetic.

The road to recovery has been a long one for this fearless 7-year-old. In 2006 she survived a U.S. missile attack at her home in Iraq while playing hopscotch. Not only was her foot disfigured, the missile maimed her older sister and killed her brother. The 'No More Victims" organization initially brought Rusul to the states for surgery. Group leaders say more donations are needed to help continue caring for Rusul's recovery.

But her father says the young girl is not only recovering physically, but also mentally. Hussain Firas says his daughter has regained her joy, and is looking forward to walking again, and returning to school.
