Tampa, FL-- Ireland Nugent is recovering after another round of surgery on Thursday.
The 3-year-old girl lost both of her feet after a lawn mowing accident last year. She's been working with different doctors to get a perfect-fitting prosthetic. This operation is part of that process.
Jerry Nugent told 10 News on Thursday afternoon that his daughter's surgery was successful, and that she's back in her room, sleeping very peacefully.
Her parents are hoping that she will be ready to start school next fall.
"This time she's going to be in overnight," Jerry said prior to the operation. "All surgeries for her are hard, hard on the family hard for us to get through... but we know she's going to be better."
Jerry expressed that it is Ireland's strong spirit that helps them get through each day.
