Sarah Murnaghan Asleep After A Good Birthday

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

Sarah Murnaghan, our brave little girl, has fallen asleep after an 11th birthday surrounded by family and friends.

Sarah's mother Janet wrote this on her Facebook today:

Sarah has a fabulous 11th birthday with her family! she is exhausted and off to sleep already, but I was so pleased she was really able to last a good long while energy wise. The CF team, especially her life-long doctor, Dr. Panitch and the transplant team made a big deal of the day. She felt really special! Child life at CHOP made it all possible, couldn't have done it alone. I must say having my whole family together again made me more impatient then ever for our HOMECOMING. Thank yo for all the birthday wishes. this extraordinary birthday would not have happened without everyone's support. Thank you ALL of you who supported us over these last three months.

Janet also posted many pictures of the day. Sarah had a cake, and everyone sang her happy birthday. You can see the pictures and video here. Janet also wrote another status update:

Highlights of my day: holding Finn, Sean and Ella on my lap all at once; watching Sarah and Robby, her cousin/bff, talking in her hospital bed about how he desperately needs her to come home and help him with all the little kids who are driving him crazy; Sarah and Ella informing me that they are going to share a room when Sarah is home; and finally just having my whole family together again.
