ATLANTA (WGCL/CNN)A little girl who was mauled by a pit bull is back home months before even her doctors predicted.

Syrai Sanders, 6, said she now considers her friend, Logan Braatz, her Guardian Angel.

She still has a long way to go but, if her condition Wednesday was any indication, she's going to get there with a big smile on her face.

If the Navy Seals took 5-year-olds, they wouldn't find one tougher than Syrai. Less than two months after a horrific pit bull attack that killed her friend, Logan Braatz, and nearly killed her, she's back home goofing around with her dad like nothing ever happened.

"It was unbelievable, especially how quick she started feeling well. Even when she was in bad condition, she was smiling and playing like she is now," says Willie Sanders.

He said even the doctors called his daughter's recovery a miracle. They thought she'd be in the hospital for a year, but nine surgeries later she's in her pajamas on her own living room couch.

When I asked her what it was like to be in the hospital, she said, "Good...because you got to enjoy all the TV."
