A week after being released from the hospital for a double lung transplant, 10-year-old Jordy Carper of Hedgesville, W.Va., is recovering with his family at a hotel outside Los Angeles.
"We want to come home," said Jordy's mother, Melissa, who has been staying in California with him since May 12. That may not happen until October, as doctors check for signs of organ rejection.
"He's doing very well for what's he's been through," she said, adding that Jordy's father Gary and his two younger brothers are with him.
