Birmingham, AL -

       The 10 year old girl who received a lung transplant after a legal battle has pneumonia.
        Sarah Murnaghan's mother says doctors believe the  pneumonia in her right lung is caused by "aspirations from her belly."
       The Pennsylvania girl had a lung transplant on June 12; but, it failed and she had to have a second transplant on June 15.
     The girl remains on a ventilator because she had partial paralysis of the diaphragm after second surgery.
