Fargo boy could leave hospital soon after double lung transplant

We have a team at a hospital in Houston, Texas as a 10-year-old Fargo boy hopes Thursday is the day. Jordan Peterson continues his amazing recovery from a life saving transplant just one week ago.

We have a team at a hospital in Houston, Texas as a 10-year-old Fargo boy hopes Thursday is the day. Jordan Peterson continues his amazing recovery from a life saving transplant just one week ago.

The Oak Grove 5th grader could be released from Texas Children's tomorrow. Today, our first chance to meet Jordan after his surgery. He is walking around outside his room, celebrating his new set of lungs. Three other times it appeared a transplant would happen, but he left the operating room without the lungs. Tough for a 10-year-old who just wants to play hockey with friends and be able to breathe. Jordan hopes to be back in Fargo and in school by mid September.
