AURORA, CO (WAFB) - A Baton Rouge teen wounded in the Colorado theater shootings had another surgery Tuesday.

Bonnie Kate Pourcieu is recovering from her third operation on her leg since being shot last Friday.

Her mom, Kathleen, posted a message on Facebook, saying in part:

"This is great news.  It means one less surgery she has to have when she returns to Baton Rouge, which will hopefully be at the end of the week.  We are grateful for every little step forward as well as everyone's prayers on her behalf.  Thanks so much!"

Bonnie Kate's brothers and sisters are ready and waiting with the welcome home signs.  She is the oldest of seven.
