Baby Noor won’t need bladder surgery:

Doctors at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta said Friday that Noor al-Zahra, the Iraqi baby rescued by soldiers of a Gainesville-based infantry unit, will not require bladder surgery and remains in good condition.

Noor, however, will need catherization from time to time, although that can be done by family members at home, a hospital statement said.

Urologist Dr. Andrew Kirsch said the baby will need annual monitoring but Kirsch gave her an excellent prognosis as far as her kidneys were concerned.
