girl with 8 limbs

this girl had a sucessful surgery today removing her extra 2 legs and 2 arms. she was named Lakshmi Tatma after the four-armed hindu goddess of wealth which is ironic being born to an incridibly poor family. some consider her to be a goddess.

She was born attached to a parasitic twin which ceased developing in the mother's womb. The surviving fetus absorbed the limbs, kidneys and other body parts of the undeveloped fetus.

She certainly is cute.
