MAN WITH GRAFTED HAND EATING NORMALLY

A 48-year-old man who got a new right hand and forearm is eating and drinking normally four days after the 13-hour surgery, the hospital reported Monday.

The grafted right hand, the hospital said, was "well-colored," an apparent sign of satisfactory blood circulation.

The five-line hospital statement identified the patient for the first time by name: Clint Hallam. Hospital personnel said Hallam is from New Zealand but lives in Perth, Australia.
