Alexis Goggins Update

Remember the story of Alexis Goggins, the little girl who threw took seven bullets when she herself in between her mother and the mother's gun wielding boyfriend? Well she is "recovering":

After more than two months in the hospital and six surgeries, Alexis was recently released. She returns twice a week for physical therapy.

The young girl bears several scars from the Dec. 2 shooting, including a long, thin surgical line stretching from one side of her hairline to the other. Her right eye, which was blinded in the attack, has also been removed.

In addition to the physical therapy, she also meets with a teacher assigned to the hospital until she's ready to return to school. And in the coming weeks, she will be fitted with an artificial eye. SOURCE
If you don't remember, Alexis already had to cope with developmental challenges as a result of a stroke as a child and now she's lost her right eye. MSNBC.com has pictures.
