    Our transplant girl is a little fighter.

     The parents of a seven-month-old girl who had a liver transplant following a nationwide appeal for a donor, spoke
    yesterday of their relief that she was responding well to surgery.
    Hannah Parkins, whose own liver had been failing, had been given days to live before her six hour operation on Friday
    night at the Diana, Princess of Wales Children's Hospital in Birmingham.
    Thanking the donor family, Hannah's mother, Gillian Parkins, 30, from Hyde, Greater Manchester, said: 'We're very, very
    grateful to them in what must be a very difficult and traumatic time. Hannah is looking well and is responding.'
    The baby's father, Steven, 34, a medical technician, was cautiously optimistic, saying she still had a way to go. 'She's a
    fighter,' he said. She's only a little thing but she's very strong.
    'We've been very fortunate. We've had all these people to help us. But it'll be couple of weeks before we can really relax.'
    The Parkins were speaking at the start of National Transplant Awareness Week. Jean de Ville de Goyet, the Belgian
    surgeon who headed the transplant team, said: 'There have been no major complications. It's working nicely. When it
    starts that way, there's lot of hope.'
