TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Ireland Nugent's family can breathe easy now.

The little girl who has been through so much had another successful surgery Thursday morning, and the family was nervous going into it.

She's been through procedures before. This is her ninth, but her family said this one had to do with her bones and was far more extensive than the others.

However, the family said Thursday morning that Ireland was recovering after surgery.

"Irelands surgery was successful," they said in a Facebook update. "Just got back to see her and she is resting comfortably."

If you're not familiar with her story, she was tragically injured in a lawn mowing accident at her home.

She's now been fitted with prosthetic legs, and she took her first steps in June.
