A 5-year-old Texas girl, suspected of having contracted the H1N1 virus has been released from a Shreveport hospital.

According to KSLA-TX, Ashlyn Carver's mother, Brenda McCowen, had taken her to the emergency room in Marshall, TX where she says doctors told her Ashlyn had H1N1. When she hadn't gotten better a few days later, they brought her to Christus Schumpert in Shreveport.

Doctors have been unable to confirm if, in fact, the virus was H1N1, but they say aside from some possible lung damage, Ashlyn should make a full recovery.  Released in good condition, she is now at home with her family.
