Lakshmi Tatma made her first public appearance today after her surgery to remove her four extra limbs. Her doctors told a press conference that she is making steady progress. The child was carried into the conference by her father and had casts on both of her legs.
Lakshmi was taken off of her respirator on Friday and one of her surgeons reported that she seemed a bit confused.
“Lakshmi appeared very perplexed and kept staring at her legs, wondering where the rest of her body had disappeared,” Dr. Sharan Patil said.
