Happy Erin fine after second transplant7th August 2007
Four days after her parents made an emotional appeal for a donor to come forward, little Erin Nicks had a second life-saving transplant at Birmingham Children's Hospital.
The happy toddler, who will be three next month, was born with a condition called biliary atresia, which causes bile to build up in the liver and begins to poison it.
After a month-long stay at the hospital, Erin was discharged on Wednesday and her family, who live in Newry, Northern Ireland, planned to stay with relatives in Coventry for a few days.
