TALALA, OK -- Jeremiah Mitchell's road to recovery is taking him back to the Shriners Hospital for Children in Cincinnati.

The six-year-old Talala boy went back Wednesday for a checkup.

Mitchell is one of the Oologah school children who contracted bacterial meningitis in March. The disease forced the amputation of his arms and legs as well as facial reconstruction surgery.
