WASHINGTON - Jordy Carper may be coming home this week after nearly one month at a Washington, D.C., hospital for a collapsed lung and an infection.
From his hospital room on Sunday night, Jordy said he was looking forward to sleeping in his own room.
"I'm breathing OK," Jordy said. "I'm not feeling sick at all."
He's had enough of hospital food, too.
"I'm not too crazy about it," he said, just before diving into his favorite Chinese dish, orange chicken. "It's pretty bad."
The 11-year-old Hedgesville, W.Va., boy who received a double-lung transplant in June has been hospitalized since April 2 at Children's National Medical Center.
