Transplant patient Kirstie Tancock from Honiton is recovering after a second lung transplant.
Kirstie was sitting up in her hospital bed last night and able to enjoy a meal.
She underwent surgery in London on Saturday after her body rejected the organs she received in 2011.
Two friends from Devon have celebrated their first healthy Christmas since surviving a deadly lung disease.
Kirstie Tancock, who just a year ago had a double lung transplant, is about to take on a 180 mile charity bike ride.
