New face, still running in

The French woman who received revolutionary facial transplant surgery after having her own face mauled by a dog is out and about, and restarting her life.

[One] of her surgeons, Bernard Devauchelle, said: "Her facial expressiveness is slowly returning and she is talking quite clearly, but has some problems with the letters P and B, which require the lips. "She certainly does not look like the living dead. She's eating and drinking without dribbling."

I bet this link to her photo and story is the most popular link today... [Hat tip Daily Pundit]
