Peru's "little mermaid" baby doing well six months post-surgery
Earlier this year we brought you the story of Milagros Cerron, a baby from Peru who was born with a rare condition called sirenomelia, or "mermaid syndrome." In June, doctors operated on the little girl, in an attempt to separate her fused legs. Six months later, doctors are optimistic about Milagros's recovery. Milagros is now nineteen months old and making good progress, though doctors say it will probably be another few years before she's walking and she will need more surgeries and rehabilitation into her teen years at least.
