Baby Noor making progress:

A check-up Tuesday of Baby Noor, the Iraqi infant airlifted to Atlanta surgery on Jan. 9, showed she is making progress, hospital officials said.

Dr. Roger Hudgins, chief neurosurgeon at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, removed a tube that had drained fluid from the baby’s back, the hospital said in a statement. Noor is said to be in good condition and is healing well.

Noor’s grandmother said she is pleased with the baby’s progress.

“It is a blessing to see Noor so happy now that her condition is improving with each passing day,” she said, according to the hospital’s statement.
