TISHOMINGO, Okla. (KXII) - A Tishomingo girl finally gets a new liver to treat a rare disease.

2-year-old Elaina has been waiting for a liver since she was born.

Her parents Kellie and Cody Reynolds said she was born 7 weeks early and was diagnosed shortly after with biliary atresia, a rare liver disease.

Earlier this month Elaina finally received her transplant. Her parents said she’s doing better than imagined and they hope to be discharged soon.
